"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.

Recent Guitar-Centric Recordings

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Hear new guitar-centric music on this New Sounds program including music from the Baird Sisters, and from a new live record by South African guitarist Guy Buttery, who covers a song by Joanna Newsom. Also, listen to guitarist Glenn Jones, who draws from the rich tradition of John Fahey’s “American Primitive” guitar-playing.  Then hear music performed by the three classical guitarists of the Mobius Trio that owes a debt to John Fahey and hints at minimalism. Plus there’s small ensemble music written at Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur, California from guitarist Bill Frisell, and music by John Zorn, as played by Pat Metheny.

"Psychedelic Appalachia"

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Hear fingerstyle guitar music with a wash of drones - "Psychedelic Appalachia"- from steel string shredder Daniel Bachman, whose latest effort is the full-length “Seven Pines.” 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.
