I’m proud to have a feature in the new issue of Yeti, which comes out today. It’s a chronicle of the recent collaborations between progressive folk guitarist Jack Rose and the Black Twig Pickers, a killer old time group from the greater Roanoke region of western Virginia. I had a lot of fun writing this piece. Instead of your basic artist profile, I worked in some music history and analysis, as well as a little travel writing. In preparation for the article, I visited several of Appalachia’s mountain folk landmarks, including the wonderful Carter Fold in Hiltons, Virginia. On a related note, I posted a lot of my journey’s notes to my other blog Strawberry Flats. Kindly check that out, too.
I have a feeling Yeti Seven isn’t going to be around forever, so if you want to buy a copy of this super cool publication, go here.
