This new school American Primitive guitarist is a flawless fingerpicker known for diverse open tunings and other harmonic alternatives. His recently released fifth solo album, Garden State, is an elegiac gem inspired by a son’s bittersweet ruminations on his ailing mother and New Jersey motherland. With the joint spirits of Charles Ives and John Fahey in attendance, the Fourth can’t get much more independent. With D. Charles Speer and the Helix.
