John Fahey 1939-2001

Forty-two years ago John Fahey released an album of solo acoustic guitar based upon classical structures – Bartok played by Mississippi John Hurt being the simple concept – in an edition of 100 with money made as a gas station attendant, and invented a genre in the process. Since then he’s been discovered, forgotten, and rediscovered by more communities than I can name, as seemingly contradictory as Windham Hill and the avant-garde, Christians and acid casualties. His passing, 22 Feb 2001, affected me in a way I had frankly thought not possible in days like these where death exists a remote control click away at all times, and often closer.
