5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful tapestry of music 5 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
Abigail Washburn and her musicians have created a beautiful tapestry of sounds, blending original music with sounds from Abigails jopurneys to China and beyond.
I was lucky enough to be at one of the "get -to gethers" when she and her band performed last week in the UK. She sang off mike several times- it was spell binding. I would recommend this albumn to anyone who appreciates an original banjo musician weaving her magic with melodies , which will have you humming along to them way after the music has stopped!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beguiling Banjo Dreams 6 Nov 2011
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This wonderful album by banjo-player Abigail Washburn, released in January,
dipped under my radar, I am, therefore, very happy to have found her now.
'City Of Refuge' deserves to be heard by anyone who has time for good music.
Ms Washburn plays her chosen instrument with consummate artistry and posesses
a really lovely voice. The brief 'Prelude' and ten songs in the collection have
no need of flash and clutter to win us over. Their economy and strong melodic
character belies a sound musical intelligence which knows how to tell a good
story as well as spin a good tune. The bluegrass roots of her muse marry
tradition and contemporary flair with a fresh pair of ears and easy charm.

Take a song like 'Ballad Of Treason', which sports a splendid string and
brass arrangement framing some nifty chord changes and truly elegant
vocal harmonies. Ms Washburn's voice floats in the ether like an angel.
'Bring Me My Queen', dances hand in hand with the spirit of Emmylou Harris
in a slow and stately composition whose warmth would doubtless keep the
cold winds from the door in the winter months ahead and 'Dreams Of Nectar',
with its gently hummed backing vocals sways to and fro like a small wooden
boat floating on the still surface of a sparkling Appalachian Mountain lake.
The melancholy narrative of 'Corner Girl' is another enchanting invention
(perhaps the album's finest moment). The interplay between banjo, strings
and Ms Washburn's plaintive vocals conjures the very essence of loneliness.
