Grammy award-winning clawhammer banjo player, Abigail Washburn, and guzheng (21-string Chinese zither) virtuoso, Wu Fei have embarked on a journey of sharing their multicultural music with kids and families. During their interactive performance at RhizomeDC, Wu Fei and Abigail will share stories about finding harmony and friendship through music, as well as their unique cultures and instruments. Wu Fei and Abigail Washburn are collaborative sisters from far-flung countries. Performing together as an entirely unique banjo-guzheng duo, Wu Fei & Abigail weave together traditional Appalachian and Chinese songs, singing in both English and Mandarin.
