Trixie Whitley, (2016)
From

From the New Sounds Live concert series, listen to some of the masterful guitarists who were part of the New York Guitar Festival 2017, presented in The Greene Space.

Hear music from guitarist Marc Ribot, who has been sideman to everyone from Tom Waits to Robert Plant & Allison Krauss, from Caetano Veloso, to Allen Toussaint, from Jamaaladeen Tacuma to Diana Krall, & John Zorn. He was in a blue mood on that night in The Greene Space, and chose his original, “Blues for Natalia,” along with music from the big band era (Bix Beiderbecke), and a John Coltrane tune. Then, listen to guitarist/songwriter Trixie Whitley, who draws from her favorite styles – punk, electronica, R & B and her tune, “Oh, the Joy.” Marc Ribot and Trixie Whitley took to the stage together as well for the civil rights song, "Ain’t gonna let them turn me around." 

There’s front porch music from American songster and multi-insturmentalist Dom Flemons (founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops) which documents life on the road, and dips into the blues as well. Plus, hear a tune from jazz guitarist Julian Lage and his new Martin guitar.
