Thanks for providing the explanatory notes in the playlist. Puts the music in perspective

Cathy and Marcy! Great folk duo all stars! Love these collabs with musicians from other parts of the world. We saw Abigail Washburn and Bela Fleck play a wonderful set with Nepalese musicians at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival a few years back. And Abigail had been featuring some Chinese songs in her sets before that as result of her travels and studies abroad. They blend so well the different cultures
Brian D 10:25:35 AM
Wu Man is such a great musician

@ good mental (host) Thanks so much for today's truly awesome playlist. Especially "Paper Lanterns" by Wu Force (Abigail Washburn, Kai Welch & Wu Fei). I know Ms. Washburn & Ms. Wu personally, and they're not only tremedous musicians but virtuoso human beings. I hope they'll collaborate again soon. Meanwhile, please play anything from their wondrous individual projects. Thanks!
