Lebo Jenkins - Couch's Barn and Fretless

Lebo Jenkins
Couch's Barn and Fretless

I met Lebo Jenkins in early spring when he was organizing and playing on an event with Moses Nesh and Sarah Louise in Atlanta. He knows a lot about old-time music, banjos, old pickers and he likes to tell stories. He can scratch tunes out of a f …
Andy McLeod - From the Attic

Andy McLeod
From the Attic

This is the first EP of fingerstyle guitarist Andy McLeod from Philadelphia, PA. Inspired by Jack Rose, Pelt, Fahey, Delta Blues and rural Chester County, McLeod taught himself how to finger pick the guitar in open tunings and play the banjo in c …
dfbm #69 - Beating the System

dfbm #69
Beating the System

This new program is less revolutionary than the title might suggest, but I guess people like Charles Manson, Doc Corbin Dart from American HC legend the Cruzifucks and Vic Bondi out of Chicagos HC scene caused at least some cracks in the system. …
Sarah Louise – Interview

Sarah Louise – Interview

​Some months ago I stumbled upon Sarah Louise's bandcamp and found her guitar work on "Field Guide" quite excellent. It was like a direct translation of the region she comes from. Shortly after that I found out that these tracks were …

Ryley Walker - Folkadelphia Session

Ryley Walker
Folkadelphia Session

Here is a nice solo set by Ryley Walker, recorded for the well known Folkadelphia serie, last year. Beside all the praise Walker will get for his coming album Primrose Green, it's important to keep an ear open for his solo (radio) appearances. …
Samuel Gray Edmondson - Suite

Samuel Gray Edmondson
Suite

A lovely 4 track EP by a, to me unknown guitar player from the US East Coast. This is basically a 12 minute composition, divided into four pieces. Wonderful picking style similar to James Blackshaw. So it's less the country blues picking and more …
Toby Hay - Marteg EP

Toby Hay
Marteg EP

Welsh fingerstyle guitarist Toby Hay crossed my internet browsing paths last year, but it didn't struck a chord with me back in those days. He's a classical guitar trained musician and so his technique is great, but the music was sounding ver …
Dominick Joseph Gambini - s/t

Dominick Joseph Gambini
s/t

Fantastic recordings by a guy who listed Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and John Fahey as his influences. This short demo starts off with a cover version of "Sundogs" by Jack Rose (RIP). It's basically a constant, metallic drone made by moving a …
