The California based fiddle, guitar and banjo player and ardent 78
collector Frank Fairfield sings soaring hillbilly ballads, arcane
rambling songs and murder ballads delivered in a reedy tenor with that
irresistible dust to digital quality. Still in his early twenties but
steeped in the pre-War Americana of Mississippi John Hurt and Dock
Boggs, he cut his teeth as a street performer in LA and has the raw
intensity and spellbinding technique to make your hairs stand on end. Fleet Foxes handpicked him to open for them on their 2008 US tour and
he has found fans elsewhere in Grammy winning producer Chris King
(Charley Patton, People Take Warning box set), Phil Alexander (Mojo)
and Greil Marcus. His debut album is out now on Tompkins Square and
picked up rave reviews across the board.
.... Also there is a Record Fair from Colin Edgeworld at St. Leonards' The
Rooms this Sunday sometime...
and Part Chip [21st august] znd The Telescopes [18th august, tonight]
