Hi Abby! Now that Juno is school age and you have a newborn at home, will you and Bela keep doing shows together?
Yes, we will! We are making it work and going back on tour in December, and are touring all next spring.
No question, just saw you in Annapolis...superlative...thank you for being so smart and gifted and sharing it with us!Abigail Washburn responded on 08/02/2018 Next question
Dear Abigail, I am a great admirer of you and Béla in part because I love your music and in part because both of you seem to have worked out how to live life doing exactly what you love. I'm wondering: did you face any significant challenges that stood in the way of that, and what gave you the courage, confidence, resilience, grit, or whatever you want to call it to surmount them? What would you say about finding a way to live the life you love to someone who's perhaps not very confident and struggling with hopelessness that it's even possible? I know that there isn't one answer that fits everyone, but I'd love to hear about what might have helped you, or an anecdote, or a story that someone told you, or a realization that you had, or a koan - anything that comes to mind. Thank you so much! And keep it up! Love to you and your family!
