Album Notes
Tommy Dahill's music is the product of mis-learning and doing everything wrong. He started playing as an adult, not as a kid, plays blues on a banjo through an amp with a picking style he made up while camping, and plays 100% solo. After hearing the Gun Club cover a Son House tune while in high school, and endless quest for the roots of songs led him to the Delta Blues music of Johnny Shines and Fred McDowell (and in recent years to the music of the Sahara) which has help him in a spell for decades. He arrives at the banjo from a blues point of view, not a bluegrass point of of view, with an almost-equal appreciation of Link Wray and the Monks. This is more like Bukka White covering a Minutemen song than anything Earl might've played. With the exception of track three (written in Alaska) these were written while camping in SoCal deserts and mountains.
