Weishan Liu has played the gu-zheng since the late-1940’s. She studied under Master Cao Zheng at the Shen Yang Music Conservatory in China. Weishan moved to the United States in 1982, and founded the San Francisco Gu-Zheng Music Society to promote the gu-zheng and traditional Chinese music and culture, and to provide cultural exchange and performance opportunities for musicians of all levels."

Wu Fei & Abigail Ashburn Water is Wide/Wusuli Boat Song
Wu Fei & Abigail Washburn Smithsonian Folkways 2020

"Wu Fei and Abigail Washburn’s debut collaborative release is a testament to the connective power of music across seemingly disparate cultures. Merging American old-time music and Chinese folksong, Wu Fei & Abigail Washburn features gorgeous, impressionistic renditions of traditional material from the hills of Appalachia to the prairies of Xinjiang region, each tune flowing seamlessly into the next. The effervescent resonances of Wu’s guzheng zither dance around Washburn’s expressive banjo playing, their voices intertwining English and various Chinese dialects."
