GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter and clawhammer banjo player Abigail Washburn and Chinese musical prodigy, Wu Fei master of the guzheng (the ancient 21-string zither), will perform music from their self-titled album on Saturday, March 2. Known for blending music from their homes in Appalachia and China, the effervescent resonances of Fei’s guzheng zither dance around Washburn’s expressive banjo playing, intertwining to create a new musical language. Wu Fei and Abigail Washburn’s performance highlights shared humanity through the transformative power of song and a cross-cultural blend of music.
