MARK JOHNSON & EMORY LESTER 'Acoustic Vision'

MARK JOHNSON & EMORY LESTER 'Acoustic Vision'

  • $13.50


From the very first cut here (BROWN COUNTY BREAKDOWN) the listener knows he/she is going to hear something quite different: it’s not Bluegrass and it’s not old-time—though the pickers have the skills and familiarity with those genres. Both these musicians are known for tasteful, subtle acoustic music, and that is what we have here, with Mark Johnson’s clawhammer banjo beautifully complimented by Lester’s mandolin, guitar, bouzouki or fiddle. The duo has made two excellent previous records as well. Johnson uses a standard Deering banjo on most of the 14 numbers, but on a couple he utilizes a frestless 5-string. Tunes range from moody to sprightly on this really nice collection. LITTLE SEAN, BUCK CREEK DAWN, MY SALLY, BROWNTOWN ROAD, MOTHER OF A MINER’S CHILD, etc.
