Building U.S.-Chinese Relations, by Banjo

Abigail Washburn is a remarkable talent. And to think she could have been a lawyer.


I liked the way this one turned out (click photo to enlarge). The purple is from the spotlight.


Her short TED talk is uplifting (and for those who were at TED, this the earlier performance she did as TED Fellow, so you may have missed a gem).


“I see the power of music to connect cultures. I see it when I stand on a stage at a bluegrass festival … and I bust out into a song in Chinese, and everybody's eyes just pop wide open.”
