On the 'tube

Marisa Anderson - NPR Tiny Desk Concert (Gretsch Content)

I came across this woman's name somewhere in the midst of reading about Reverend Gary Davis, Stefan Grossman, and Ry Cooder. If you recognize those names, you probably know what to expect here. She really wowed me with her raw, hypnotic fingerstyle blues guitar.

Anyways, I've been listening to her on Spotify all day, and then I found this video of her playing for NPR. She gets some nice tones from an old Gretsch Single Anniversary that appears to have a humbucker fitted in place of the Hilo'tron.

If you dig that, check out her spacey 'Into the Light' album, or her album of 'Traditional and Public Domain Songs'
