Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn Win Best Folk Album at 2016 Grammy Awards
Fleck and Washburn accepted the award in the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony. During their speech, they explained that they have been together as a couple for 12 years, but up until recently, had been touring separately. That all changed when Washburn became pregnant with the couple’s child, Juno.
Washburn said that their winning album was “for us, as much about learning to be a family as it is about music.”
Among others, the husband and wife thanked Washburn’s mother for coming on tour with them so that Washburn could be a musician and a mom.
“Juno is our good luck charm,” Fleck said. “And we’re thinking seriously about making another.”
“Another record!” clarified Washburn.
