Performer Notes
  • Personnel: B‚la Fleck, Ben Sollee, Casey Driessen.
  • To say that the members of The Sparrow Quintet have chops would be gross understatement. With multi-instrumentalist (but most notably banjoist) Bela Fleck, cellist Ben Sollee, and the Grammy-nominated fiddler Casey Driessen, singer/banjoist Abigail Washburn has assembled a dream team Appalachian jam band. But the formula's most intriguing aspect here is Washburn's incorporation of Chinese musical elements. She has toured in China, singing in Chinese, and songs like "Taiyang Chulai" and "Journey Home" bear the fruit of her cross-pollinating style. Fleck and Washburn's dueling clawhammer and three-finger banjo styles keep things boisterous.
Professional Reviews
Q (Magazine) (p.139) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Her travels in China, often performing bluegrass songs in Mandarin...creates a unique and haunting style in her own work."
