Smart Bets: Abigail Washburn at The Grey Eagle

Singer-songwriter-banjo-player Abigail Washburn has been a regular visitor to Asheville since her days with the Sparrow Quartet. She played White Horse Black Mountain last year while on tour for the gorgeous and super-smart world/pop/folk album City of Refuge. Read more about that performance, and Washburn's work as a goodwill cultural ambassador, at http://avl.xm/pv. Washburn plays The Grey Eagle on Thursday, Feb. 7 (8 p.m., $15) where she'll debut her new trio, The Wu Force. The group includes Wu Fei — a Bejing-born guzheng (Chinese zither) master, and Kai Welch — the co-writer on City of Refuge. http://thegreyeagle.com.
