Abigail Washburn

Wow, someone finally did it. I think every musician that goes to China thinks to themselves...If I sing in Chinese, I could be really big! Well, what would have once been considered novelty, is actually quite good. Abigail Washburn spent time living in Chengdu China teaching English and also plays the Banjo. So she decided to combine the two. The result is acutally quite interesting music. Upon listening you realize her music has soul, and is beautiful. She has a nice voice and I like the banjo and cello combination. Not all her songs are in Chinese either (smart move Abigail). I'm impressed, someone finally brought Appalachia to the middle kingdom. Take a look and a listen .
