Abigail Washburn Performs New Songs On Mountan Stage

NPR Music has posted a great interview and performance of Abigail Washburn performing new songs from her upcoming LP, City of Refuge, that will not be released until 2011.

NPR had this to say about the performance:

Abigail Washburn has appeared on Mountain Stage several times, including two appearances with The Sparrow Quartet and once with Uncle Earl. Her new CD, City of Refuge, will be released in 2011. She previews the CD in this, her second solo appearance on Mountain Stage.

She is joined here by City of Refuge producer Kai Welch on keys, guitar and trumpet, bassist Bryn Davies (heard last week with Justin Townes Earle) and fiddle player Rayna Gellert, also a member of Uncle Earl.

They begin with Washburn’s sparse arrangement of the traditional gospel song “Bright Morning Stars.” She wrote “Last Train” with Kai Welch.

Mountain Stage vocalist Julie Adams ends this segment with a version of “Summer of My Dreams,” written by Dave Mallett.
