Music Business Radio

Singer, songwriter, and musician, Abigail Washburn, joins us this week. Comfortable in front of rock as well as folk audiences, she is a music festival favorite. Knowing only a few songs on the banjo, Abigail was offered a record deal while on one last road trip through the US on her way to study law in Beijing. Her love for China has led her to that country many times, including a performance at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. Abigail will talk about her career detour, her creative influences from traditional American and Chinese music, and her unexpected acceptance in the indie-pop world.
