Barry Brogan grew up with the old music, and his guitars have old souls. Vintage pieces from the Roaring Twenties and thirsty Thirties include blues, rags, and little melodic voyages. His finger style arrangements are blue-ribbon favorites at festivals, with six-and twelve string, and bottleneck slide.
this is American musical history with six, twelve-string, and slide guitars in an award-winning complex fingerstyle, with an ease of movement that seems effortless. Vocals are added when appropriate. Favorite artists include Bessie Smith, Clarence Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Fats Waller, Arthur (Blind) Blake and Robert Johnson, up through John Fahey, Jorma Kaukonen, maybe even Harvey Reid & Mike Dowling. You will hear barroom rag, blue blues, and ballads and melodies that each generation re-discovers as its own private treasure.
Jim Davis on stand-up bass and Chuck Spano on hand percussion sometimes join in to make a Hot Pickup group, throughout Central Florida.
