Abigail Washburn was living in Vermont and working as an activist when her good friends the Cleary Brothers lost their banjo player after scheduling a tour of Alaska. Blowing the dust off her banjo, Washburn began a crash course in playing the instrument, eventually joined the group, and was soon off on her first tour. Performing in front of an audience fit like a glove, and soon Washburn was assuming lead vocals as well. Before long, she was releasing albums of her own, including Song of the Traveling Daughter (2005), Abigail Washburn & the Sparrow Quartet (2008), and City of Refuge (2011). ~ David Jeffries
