Pair a Nashville-based banjo player and a Beijing-born guzheng performer and you get Abigail Washburn and Wu Fei’s imaginative Chinese-Appalachian fusion. Washburn, a clawhammer-style picker and alumna of the Middlebury College Chinese language program, has strong connections to Eastern culture, regularly touring the world’s most populous country. Fei was classically trained before heading to the United States, where she has embraced Western styles, composing for choirs, string quartets and chamber ensembles. The duo, who sometimes collaborate in the “Kungfu-Appalachian” trio Wu-Force, head to Washburn’s old stomping grounds to bridge the Pacific as part of the Middlebury Language Schools centennial celebration.
