Summary
Known as the father of American Primitive Guitar, many consider John Fahey to be a foundational figure in American folk music. As both musician and musicologist, Fahey made a fundamental contribution to our understanding and appreciation of such music genres as Delta blues, Appalachian bluegrass, and New Orleans jazz. Interviews, performances and archival footage with animation are combined in a musically charged tribute to a tremendously influential composer, guitarist and provocateur
