Riverboat Album


John Fahey (1939 – 2001) gave the name American Primitivism for his genre of music, a term borrowed from the visual arts, referring mainly to the self-taught nature his musics minimalist style. Derived from the country blues and string band music of the ’20s & ’30s. When it doubt, I listen to John Fahey.
