Abigail Washburn’s distinctive style is rooted in her love of two seemingly unrelated worlds: Appalachian folk music and Chinese culture. Her unconventional fusion of East and West on the banjo has a soulful complexity that speaks to audiences of any background. Abigail has recorded albums and toured both solo, with The Sparrow Quartet, and with Uncle Earl. Her most recent project, a benefit EP titled Afterquake, is a poignant portrait of both suffering and hope that blends the voices of Chinese children singing traditional folk songs with electronic sounds and post-earthquake samples.
