Cheers to the 2016 GRAMMY winners who’ve graced Levitt stages!

In December, we were thrilled to learn that 21 artists who have performed on Levitt stages across the country received nominations for the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Last night, four of those nominees took home gilded gramophones! A hearty congratulations to the following 2016 GRAMMY winners:

Jon Cleary
Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks (2015)

This New Orleans keyboardist, singer and songwriter took home the GRAMMY Award for “Best Regional Roots Music Album” for his album Go Go Juice. For a behind-the-scenes peek at Cleary’s GRAMMY-winning album in the making, check out the video below.

Levitt Pavilion Arlington (2013 & 2012)

This five-person a capella group’s arrangement of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” earned them the GRAMMY Award for “Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Capella.” Treat your ears and eyes to the group’s GRAMMY-winning song below. 

Snarky Puppy
Levitt Pavilion Arlington (2013 & 2010)

This instrumental fusion band took home the GRAMMY Award for “Best Contemporary Instrumental Album” (along with Dutch jazz-pop ensemble, Metropole Orkest) for their collaborative album, Sylva. Like Snarky Puppy’s previous eight albums, Sylva was recorded in single takes in front of a live audience. Experience one of the live recording sessions for this GRAMMY-winning album below.

Abigail Washburn
Levitt Shell Memphis (2011)

Twelve years into their relationship, this fiery vocalist/claw-hammer banjo player and her banjo-playing husband Béla Fleck joined forces to create their Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn album. This collaborative work earned the husband-wife duo this year’s GRAMMY Award for “Best Folk Album.” Washburn said that their winning album was “for us, as much about learning to be a family as it is about music.” Enjoy one of the many creations this GRAMMY-winning partnership has brought to life below.
