James Blackshaw

As an instrumentalist Blackshaw takes his primary cues from the Takoma /Vanguard school of guitarists. Although most inspired by the late great Robbie Basho, he is no mere puppet for this style of playing. With an amazing speed amp; dexterity in his finger-picking, Blackshaw creates some of the most intricate and beautifully fragile harmonies, which morph and develop into fully formed compositions of stunning beauty.
