Incredible guitar player.
Have yet to hear Litany of Echoes but I can say with no doubt in mind that Blackshaw's releases (Personal favourites include Sunshrine and O True Believers) up this point have placed him firmly next to Fahey, Basho, Sandy Bull and the likes. A man who when he plays the guitar looks like a duck in water.
Enjoy these videos of an in-store at Aquarius earlier this year (Just stumbled upon this). Oh, and I was in San Francisco that weekend but the show happened to fall on the day I was leaving so I missed it. Sad, sad day that was.
The camera works a bit shaky at times but my guess is that it was packed in there, so no blame is cast.
