Making her annual pilgrimage to Beijing, Nashville-based Abigail Washburn is bringing her banjo and her country, bluegrass, Chinese, folk music to the new Yu Gong Yi Shan tonight. She will be joined by a collection of young Chinese musicians playing traditional instruments.
For a taste of her music, check out this short piece we filmed last year with Abigail and her sometime collaborator banjo legend Bela Fleck. It features a rooftop jam in Nan Luo Gu Xiang together with the Mongolian folk band Hang Gai.
The new Yu Gong Yi Shan is near the intersection of Ping An Da Jie and Dong Si Shi Tiao. As usual, Abigail is in cahoots with Beijing music impresario Jon Campbell. His production company is called YGTwo.
