Album Review: Strange Lights Over Garth Mountain by Gwenifer Raymond
Excellent, Based on 1 Critic
AllMusic - 80 Based on rating 8/10
Welsh acoustic guitarist Gwenifer Raymond appeared like an apparition in 2018 with her debut, You Were Never Much of a Dancer. Its music was steeped in an aggressive form of the American Primitive tradition John Fahey and peers created during the 1960s from the inspirational spell cast by the dusty 78s of Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James, Dock Boggs, and Roscoe Holcomb. Obsessed with Fahey's take on the tradition, Raymond investigated his sources on her own.
