Bassist Victor Wooten Hosts Trivia Contest

Fans answer questions in hopes of winning in-home concert

Victor Wooten-one of the premier bassists in jazz and rock, most famous for his work with Béla Fleck and the Flecktones-is hosting a contest to raise music awareness and promote learning, as well as thank his fans for their support.
