Gimme five/I’m still alive
Ain’t no luck/I learned to duck”

In the spirit of John Fahey and carrying the recently dimmed torch of Jack Rose comes Daniel Bachman, an acoustic guitar player from the from our home state (the great commonwealth of Virginia). Bachman plays a style of fingerpicking – drone that weaves together deep mountain melodies and complex rhythms that can honestly be called “Pyschedelic Appalachia.” Perfect for a fall afternoon, his most recent album “Seven Pines”  just came out on Thompson Square Label.

If you haven’t yet taken a moment today to honor the loss of the world’s premier banjo player I am providing that here. Take a moment and listen to just a bit of the musical genius that was Earl Scruggs. A pioneering banjo player, Scruggs transformed not just bluegrass but all of music.

This past week I had the opportunity to catch Futurebirds live. These young guns hail from Athens GA, and with their  reverb drenched southern rock they are gaining a lot of attention. I know what you are thinking, “not another alt-country” group to but these guys put on an excellent show and make damn good music. Give em a listen, they do an excellent rendition of Stevie Nicks’ Wild Heart which you can hear below.

.

For more check out their album Hampton’s Lullaby. Looking forward to more good things coming from these guys.

Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch passed away yesterday, he was 67. An innovated guitar player, the singer songwriter was a leading voice in the British folk revival of the 60’s and collaborated extensively with John Renbourn and Anne Briggs while also being a member of the band Pentangle. His influence over folk/guitar music has and will continue to be far reaching.

Hope you had a good labor day, the ceremonial end of summer. However in the midst of beers and grilled meats maybe you thought a little about the contribution of laborers in this country…or just about how good your beer tastes.
