Editorial Reviews

Louisville, Kentucky's Nathan Salsburg is a folklorist, producer, and presenter of vernacular music for East Village Radio, the Drag City imprint Twos & Fews, and the Alan Lomax Archive, among other outlets. With his first solo record as a performer entitled Affirmed, after the 1978 winner of horse racing's Triple Crown he enters a wholly new interaction with the corpus of American (and British) musical folklore.

A colleague passed along the link to NPR's Tiny Desk Concert featuring Nathan Salsburg, at [...]. This is great playing, a bit more influenced by ragtime picking and probably European influences such as John Renbourn, but with bluesy notes and riffs and rhythms. Salsburg has accomplished what so many of the "American Primitive" guitarists (those who recorded on John Fahey's Takoma label and/or were influenced by him, Leo Kottke, and Peter Lang) achieved: that inspired blend of several fingerstyle/fingerpicking genres into something quite its own. This ranks near the playing of Phil Heywood, one of the best.

Nathan Salsburg is a rare gem. He's not caught up in anything "experimental", "indie", or whatever hip identifier gets thrown around these days. He's a gifted picker, playing original folk/americana instrumental pieces. Throughout his album "Affirmed", some movements are rag-timey, other's are more bluesy. He dances around folk, country, blues and traditional guitar styles without wandering too far one way or the other. It's a solid album. Can't get enough of it.

I happened upon Nathan Salsburg by watching the archived NPR Tiny Desk Concert he did a few days ago (check it out at [...]). Once I heard him, I immediately bought the record.

The compositions are stylistically dense - authentically grounded in traditional American music, but harmonically and melodically fresh and adventurous, somewhat in the manner of John Fahey's music, but different. The playing is virtuosic, but it's virtuosity in service of the tune.

Highly recommended.

Hey, I have only heard one song (the title track). I found it for free on his label's website. A fine six-string player. Check him out...
