Not Coming

Truly bummed that I won't be able to attend the Thousand Incarnations of the Rose festival, held in John Fahey's home town of Takoma Park later this month. A homage to all things American Primitive, it will be guitar and banjo picking heaven for sure. To console those who can't make it to this Valhalla, there's a wonderful compilation out under the same moniker. Featuring Fahey of course, plus fellow giants as Leo Kottke, Robbie Basho, Harry Taussig, and Peter Walker, it's a long overdue primer on a highly influential movement.

You can never fail to be surprised by Robbie Basho. He was a true force. People should dig out a little of Robbie. A little goes an extraordinarily long way. This song will haunt you for the rest of your life.
