John Fahey Tribute
with Peter Lang, Michael Gulezian and Nick Schillace

John Fahey 1939-2001

During a recording career that spanned more than four decades and some 40-plus albums, John Fahey electrified several generations of guitarists. Since his death in 2001, Fahey’s stature has only grown. He stands today as the most vital, original, and influential American steel-string guitarist of the 20th century.

Tonight’s tribute features three guitarists with strong ties to John Fahey, each of whom contributed to the 2006 Takoma Records release, “The Revenge of Blind Joe Death – the John Fahey Tribute CD”: Peter Lang, a pioneer of roots oriented acoustic guitar forms, was a mentor and spiritual guide to John Fahey and is featured on the platinum-selling release, “John Fahey, Peter Lang, Leo Kottke”; Michael Gulezian, a phenomenal technical guitarist with the rare ability to transcend his own virtuosity, has been called the musical link between John Fahey and Michael Hedges; and teacher, composer, & musicologist Nick Schillace has used Fahey’s self described American Primitive style as a foundation for his own expansive and idiosyncratic compositions. Prepare for an evening of greatness!
