Daniel Bachman Live in Marfa, March 16th

Marfa Public Radio, in collaboration with the Marfa Book Company, is proud to host finger-style guitarist and sonic experimenter Daniel Bachman, live on Saturday, March 16th at the book store in Marfa, at 9 pm.

The 23-year old musician and current Virginian is perhaps best known for his dexterity and creative prowess with the steel string guitar. His latest release on the Tompkins Square label, Seven Pines, features calmly grandiose acoustic instrumentals, and is often associated with the American Primitive stylings of Jack Rose, John Fahey, Robbie Basho and others.

After first hearing Fahey recordings and shadowing the late Jack Rose as a teenager, Bachman began recording and self-releasing records of experimental electro-acoustics and sound design under the Sacred Harp moniker. His music has since migrated toward guitar-based compositions, but still retains influences ranging from noise and drone to East-Meets-West psychedelia, early 20th century folksong and (we can only assume) a handful of strangely rustic audio auras in-between.

Tickets are $8 in advance, by visiting Marfa Book Company, or $10 at the door. A limited edition 7" record from Bachman will be available at the show, part of a small batch released specifically for the artist's March & April tour dates.
