American Airlines Inaugural Beijing - Dallas Fort Worth flight, May 8, 2015, at Beijing Airport. The Fiddling Thomsons with the Boston Rovers performed traditional American folk music as part of the festivities.
The first piece is a New England sea faring and whaling song called "Blow Ye Winds in the Morning." The band follows with an American fiddle tune medley of "The Yellow Rose of Texas," and "Rag Time Annie." The Boston Rovers were in China as part of a return tour and had previously performed that week at Beihang University and other venues. - https://youtu.be/Bqrp3HExFXY
