Abigail Washburn, the singing, songwriting clawhammer banjo player fluent in Mandarin - she changed her path from becoming a lawyer in China to traveling folk musician - has an 18-year relationship with China. Here's some of what Abigail's planning for 2016:

Collaborating with Yo-Yo Ma & The Silk Road Ensemble on the new album Sing Me Home (out April 22)

Backed by Yo-Yo Ma and the Ensemble, Washburn and Wu Tong, one of her favorite Chinese musicians, recorded a partial-Chinese duet of "Going Home," based on the second movement of Dvorak's "New World."

Performing with members of the Silk Road Ensemble, April 17 @ UNC Chapel Hill

Chosen for the UNC Southern Folklife Collection Research Fellowship, Abigail has been spending time in the archives of forgotten music of the south and Appalachia. On April 17, she'll lead performers of the Silk Road Ensemble in a one-off show. Musicians include tabla virtuoso Sandeep Das, violinist Johnny Gandelsman, bagpipe master Cristina Pato and wind prodigy Wu Tong.

Performing with Wu Fei at Middlebury College to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Chinese School, July 23, Middlebury, VT & July 24 at Town Hall, Middlebury

Washburn has formed a duet with one of her dear friends, renowned Chinese guzheng (zither) player, Wu Fei. They're writing a record planned for 2016/17. On July 23, the duo will perform at Middlebury College in Vermont, where Abigail studied Chinese. A second show has been added on July 24 at Town Hall in Middlebury (tickets will be on sale soon). Wu Fei studied at the best conservatory in China and recorded as an avant-garde performer for John Zorn's Tzadik label in New York City. She and her family have relocated from Beijing to Nashville.
