An evening with Abigail Washburn
The Sheridan Arts Foundation is proud to present an evening of old-time American music with Abigail Washburn live in concert on Thursday, October 25. If American old-time music is about taking earlier, simpler ways of life and music-making as one's model, Washburn has proven herself to be a bracing revelation to that tradition. She — a singing, songwriting, Illinois-born Nashville-based clawhammer banjo player — is every bit as interested in the present and the future as she is in the past, and every bit as attuned to the global as she is to the local. She pairs venerable folk elements with far-flung sounds, and the result feels both strangely familiar and unlike anything anybody's ever heard before. Washburn will play an intimate seats-in show with Boston-based instrmentalist Kai Welch. Click the above link for ticketing information.
