Q: Who are your influences?
A: Many influences. First of all country blues guitarists like John Hurt, Rev Gary Davis, Blind Blake, Lightning Hopkins. Later John Fahey was a major influence. Nowadays I just want to play " like myself ". I think I have a lot to tell with my guitar and as long as I can produce my own songs and hear good words about them I'll go on doing it. Thanks for asking, Peter.
