WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT:
Remember the first time you heard Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg sing together? It seemed so wrong, but it felt so right…
Experiencing these dreamy folk harmonies from vastly different cultures makes us wonder if we could resolve the bad blood between us and that one snarky barista who always leaves off our whip.
Our man Longfellow famously said “Music is the universal language of mankind.” This has never been more true than with the marriage of cultures and sounds performed by Washburn and Wu.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your tickets now — you don’t want to miss it!
MORE ABOUT WASHBURN & WU FEI’S NASHVILLE VISIT:
GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo player Abigail Washburn teams up with Beijing native and master guzheng virtuoso Wu Fei to weave together traditional Appalachian and Chinese folk music.

Washburn and Wu will engage the Nashville community via workshops and school visits throughout the year, creating new songs and encouraging an open dialogue of multicultural perspectives. The artists will complete this year-long study with a live performance at OZ Arts in celebration of International Children’s Day.
