Sound Tracks | Abigail Washburn Performs "Shotgun Blues" | PBS

Duration: 03:01
Program: Sound Tracks: Music Without Borders (Pilot)
Broadcast Date: Sep. 29, 2011

Never, ever, cross Abigail Washburn. Consider this video your warning.
She's playing a Gold Tone cello banjo for this selection, which has a sound that's deep and resonant - and in this context, a little ominous. The central riff has a nasty, bluesy edge, but sounds like it could also come straight out of a Chinese folk tune.
