Flatpick & Clawhammer

(fossil 793)


Released on CD in 1993
how to order this cd


Traditional guitar and banjo music.
From 1991 & 1993, two albums onone CD (70 minutes)

First came "Clawhammer" a banjo album recorded in two-mike stereo and released as cassette tape only. Then in 1993, the companion, "Flatpick" -- the same approach to guitar -- was released on tape as well. At the same time, this combined CD was released.  The cassettes are in the dust bin of history, but the CD rolls on!

Mostly instrumental, with some vocals. Crystal-clear digital recording with warm, state-of-the-art microphones.
Remastered in 2001 for new pressing.  Enhanced dynamic range and presence, with no sacrifice of digital clarity


" ... a relaxed yet propulsive feel, unfailingly
beautiful tone, and fine, ever-graceful ornamentation.
Beautifully simple and simply beautiful." -- Guitar Player


"What a pleasure ...a wonderful album"
