Musicians

I love it when amazing musicians have a genuine affect on their audiences. That’s the same deal for artists, and I think it’s one of the most valuable things an artist can do, to affect people in some way. Maybe it’s not always good, but it’s always something, and that’s really important I think. This is Reverend Gary Davis, one of the greatest Blues musicians, playing sometime in the 60’s or 70’s when the folk revival kind of brought him some attention. The way he sings and plays his guitar is kind of like the way I want to make art; it’s incredibly expressive and singular, and also real and honest and unabashed.
