Released: 26th Jan 2018

£23.99


This is a vinyl reissue of the quickly sold-out cassette by North Carolina based 12-string guitarist and multi-instrumentalist – a warming injection of Appalachian folk to thaw our cold hearts. having learned to play guitar and banjo at the foot of the black mountains in north Carolina, her music evokes creeks tumbling down hills and glistening sun-soaked vistas. highly recommended for fans of john fahey, james blackshaw, jack rose, and all those other great pickers, such as the black twig pickers. “When needed, her fingers move quickly on Field Guide, picking up the pace of the wordless conversation, then slow to a moody pace just the same. Lush, rural landscapes are brought to mind. So is happiness” —Tiny Mix Tapes, “… feels like a lost disc from Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music. Some of the tracks are inspired by old Appalachian hymns, while others have an almost far-Eastern meditative feel. It’s really, really good.” —Wake The Deaf
