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.

The Things That We Used to Do is a live recording of the two American Primitive guitar artists, Jack Rose and Glenn Jones. The film which was released last year captures the pair playing several duets and over an hour of solo footage from each of them.
The film was produced and is available from Strange Attractors Audio House.
The news of Jack Rose’s passing has brought great sadness to my Sunday. I have mentioned this phenomenal musician before here. If you haven’t listened before it is worth your time to check out especially if you like John Fahey.
Sorry I missed his recent show in Fredericksburg, VA. Jack Rose, of drone rock band Pelt fame, a man playing guitar from VA.
Some compare him to this man.
