The Folk Guitar Blues of wooden Spoon
Wooden Spoon's debut album for Bo' Weavil Recordings is a journey into the wilderness of acoustic guitar playing. Heard last year on the Free London double LP, Wooden Spoon takes some of his primary cues from the now widely known Takoma guitar tradition, as practised by Robbie Basho & John Fahey but has found his own unique voice, taking in British folk,country blues and minimalism along the way. These lyrical and elegiac tunes, recorded at home, breath warmth and honesty that can be lacking in these times of mass communication, hype & mediocrity. Playing acoustic guitar with occasional banjo, piano and tape loops, Wooden Spoon creates music of joy and sadness all at once.
