Canadian guitarist steals show at Woodford Festival Day One

Its been a long time since I've heard guitar work like this - absolutely finger-picking good. Reminiscent of Robert Johnson, and sounding like a twelve string at times, Matt Andersen showed his virtuosity, but also some moving songs (like his tribute to Coal Miners) and brilliantly funny ones (like his song about getting rid of the girlfriend from hell and wishing her on Satan). This was an hour of pure bliss. Thanks for making the journey from Canada, Matt. I will buy the records. But please come back again.

  1. Sounds as though I missed an awesome virtuoso at work - I hope to get more organised in 2012 and be at next year's Woodford Festival. Thanks for the inspiration Graham.
