"Psychedelic Appalachia"

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Hear fingerstyle guitar music with a wash of drones - "Psychedelic Appalachia"- from steel string shredder Daniel Bachman. His playing has evoked the names of both John Fahey and Robbie Basho, in both the technicality and the emotional depth.  However, it’s actually the late fingerstylist Jack Rose to whom he has been most often compared in that Bachman also relocated from Fredericksburg, VA to Philadelphia and the American Primitive guitar spirit runs strong in him.

The Gregarious Guitars of Don Bikoff

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Guitarist/composer Don Bikoff's album "Celestial Explosion" was released in 1968. The album featured acoustic guitar gently altered with studio effects, and an Eastern-influenced take on the bluesy finger-picking of Mississippi John Hurt and American Primitivism of John Fahey. Bikoff has continued to play and compose, and to accumulate experience with a sense of adventure and joy. He joins David Garland in the WNYC Studio to reminisce, laugh, and play us some guitar.
