Anchored by his virtuosity
Singer-songwriter Woody Mann writes and plays uniquely American music at the intersection of blues, folk and country.
While his own songs are more folksy than blues, Mann also covers songs by Blind Blake and Blind Boy Fuller. And his cover of "I've Been Framed" by Leiber-Stoller is riveting in its intensity.
What really sets Mann apart from other acoustic singer-songwriters, though, is his guitar playing. Mann is a virtuosic picker, on a par with John Fahey (who also wrote the liner notes) or Leo Kottke. It's an album likely to appeal to everyone from guitar freaks to the singer-songwriter crowd.
