Grammy-winning singer/songwriter/clawhammer banjo player Abigail Washburn (Béla Fleck duo, Sparrow Quartet, Uncle Earl) creates inventive cross-cultural takes on folk and old-time music. Fluent in Mandarin and armed with profound connections to communities across the Pacific, she returns to Chapel Hill with Beijing-born guzheng prodigy/vocalist/composer Wu Fei. This enchanting duo is a musical resolution to specific and differing issues about home. For Abigail, it means creating brave, intimate music with a sister from across the sea. For Fei, it is an opportunity to assimilate Chinese opera, classical and folk music into improvised song forms.
