To call this multiple Grammy-award-winning musician’s career prolific, would be an understatement. Plucking the strings of the bass guitar since he was two years old, the seasoned pro has since become a published author, joined famed jazz-bluegrass group Béla Fleck & the Flecktones, and regularly leads camps, clinics, and workshops for music students at his 150-acre riverside retreat center in the woods of Tennessee. Wooten’s newest release, Words and Tones, features his acclaimed bass-playing underscoring female vocals and boasts a complementary album, Sword and Stone, which includes instrumental renditions of several of the former album’s songs. His opening act is Denver-based funk group Garrett Sayers Trio. Sat 9 p.m.
