Chinese Bluegrass 

When banjoist and singer Abigail Washburn visited China to fulfill her Asian Studies requirement, she found an ancient culture that was strangely congruent with the Appalachian music she was also discovering. She assembled the Sparrow Quartet (Bela Fleck, second banjo; Ben Sollee, cello; Casey Driessen, fiddle) for a tour of China and Tibet, and their Chinese-influenced old-time music and Washburn's affecting vocals will create an evening of unique music making. At the Freight & Salvage Wednesday, May 2. 8 p.m., $29. 50 advance, $30.50 door. TheFreight.org
