Abigail Washburn scales her own personal wall of China
Like the troubadours of old, banjo-playing singer Abigail Washburn gets around. She went to college in Colorado and Vermont; played, worked and traveled up and down the East Coast in her early twenties; spent significant time in China; and is now a fixture in Nashville. But she does have a few constants in her life. Among the most prominent: Each year since her 1977 birth in north suburban Evanston, she’s been a regular in Chicago, returning several times a year to visit her extended family.
