With live guests John Saint-Pelvyn and Paul Metzger
I was pleased to be joined by guitarist John Saint-Pelvyn, aka Steven Matheson and multi-stringed banjo artist Paul Metzger. Both artists are from Minnesota and are embarking on a West Coast tour, and appearing the night after this how at Portland’s Turn Turn Turn.
Both sets were amazing. It’s too bad radio listeners didn’t get to see John roam around the studio and explore the acoustics of the room with his hollowbody electric and frequently vocalizing right into the f-holes. Similarly, Paul played his amazingly peculiar banjo in the darkened room, playing it with a bow and using all manners of extended string instrument techniques.
If you get a chance to catch both or either artist while they’re on tour, I strongly recommend that you do.
Here’s the show.
