Live Music: Daniel Bachman & Jake Xerxes Fussell
Thu, 4th May, 2017 @ 19:30pm - 21:30pm£5 - £18
Daniel Bachman (Virginia)
Virginia native Bachman, just 25, has been widely recorded and received comparisons to guitar greats such as John Fahey and generally described as a virtuoso. Bachman’s performances are instrumental events that weave together a narrative from the melodies and rhythms of the picking and strumming style often referred to as American Primitivism
“Recommended to fans of Michael Chapman, Ryley Walker and Jack Rose” The Independent
“He’s almost literally stopping to smell the roses, and the result is an album about growth and development, about the virtues of taking your time rather than the crutch of constantly sprinting forward. In the process, it advances Bachman’s oeuvre significantly..” Pitchfork
Jake Fussell (Durham, N.C.)
Fussell’s music blends together the best parts of Country, Blues, Folk and Old timey without ever giving into the cliches of any of these genres. His 2015 debut album, “Jake Xerxes Fussell” has received critical acclaim .
“…the rolling guitar work and shuffling percussion. “Star Girl”, with melting pedal steel and Fussell’s clear, soft-spoken singing, is pastoral, bittersweet and lonesome in the best way possible. It contrasts nicely with the stomping, dusty “Raggy Levy” or the shadowy atmosphere of “Boat’s Up the River”. The album rolls through folk and blues traditions but pushes them to fresh new horizons.” Popmaters.com
