Interview with Abigail Washburn

Video duration: 8:57

As if our debt to China weren't big enough, it turns out we also owe the Asian giant for inspiring Abigail Washburn, a true American original, to become a musician. It's a roundabout story. But you'll get the drift of it in her interview with SOUND TRACKS reporter Arun Rath, plus a sampling of her songs.
