TODD ALBRIGHT

DETROIT TWELVE STRING BLUES AND RAG

THIRD MAN RECORDS



lp

Released: 28th Apr 2017

the intricate finger-picking of this 12-string wizard left us breathless by the end and clamouring for more.

An evening’s sonic evocations of pre-WWII Blues covers an extensive selection of material recorded in the 1920’s and 30’s. Playing the 12 string guitar, Todd brings to life an era composed of Blind Lemon Jefferson, Sylvester Weaver, Blind Willie McTell and Leadbelly, among others. Todd’s history playing the Blues reaches over 25 years, though he does not remember a time that a guitar wasn’t in his hands. He first heard the Country Blues at the age of twelve, thanks to a gifted John Lee Hooker record from his sister. The experience was a profound one—the Blues felt right, and he immediately became a self-taught student of the genre aiming solely to interpret the sounds of the masters.
