The priestly moniker for whatever the talented guitarist Shawn Persinger happens to be doing, Prester John currently consists of Persinger and David Miller, a fine mandolin player. The acoustic duo's new album, Desire for a Straight Line, is an eclectic assortment of slipstream compositions touching on prog-tinged jazz, classical, manouche, and newgrass idioms. It's a lot of fun, and expect them to rip it at this intimate boite.
