[ALT FOLK] Clawhammer banjo player Abigail Washburn is revitalizing the folk landscape with her effortless blend of old-timey Americana and influences from all over the world. The result is music that sounds both familiar and strange, a carefully constructed mélange of catchy hooks and unadulterated twang. Join her and a lineup of other skilled pickers, including Kane Mathis on the Mandinka kora, the banjo’s antecedent, and Mary Ohno on the shamisen, the banjo’s Japanese cousin, in a nod to the wide range of this instrument family.
