One of my favorite banjo players is Bela Fleck. I've had the opportunity to see Bela live a couple of times back in the day when he played with New Grass Revival (pure awesomeness). I just watched this documentary called Throw Down Your Heart which follows Bela as he travels through Africa playing with various musicians. This video clip is one of my favorite moments in the documentary.
There's something (insanely) beautiful about the athletic feats in this video clip.

My new friend Ian Rhett over at sharedvoice.org is an awesome singer/songwriter/musician.
I met Ian through a series of wonderful synchronistic events - - I teach a course called the VIrtual Team Leader and was looking for guest speakers and found Brian who is the CEO of MaestroConference and Brian said "I've got a good friend Jenn who works at CivicActions.com who would also be a great guest speaker" (which she was!) and then Jenn asked me to speak on a panel about virtual teams at the annual conference of the Nonprofit Technology Network - - and THIS is when I got to meet Ian who works with Jenn at CivicActions.com
Watch the video (below) showcasing one of Ian's wonderful songs - - it's called What Kind of Amazing Grace.
