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.

NY Times did a piece on the Old Time Fiddler’s and Bluegrass Festival in Fiddler’s Grove North Carolina. The festival in Fiddler’s Grove looks pretty excellent but sounds even better. A celebration of traditional bluegrass of the mountains of Appalachia, in the mountains of Appalachia.
