Monday, May 27th: Guitarist Chuck Johnson - Wrap a raga around a Chinese melody, or an Elizabeth Cotton blues, or a Roscoe Holcomb-style Appalachian guitar tune, and you'll get an inkling of where Chuck Johnson's guitar technique comes from. Johnson's fingerstyle playing touches on those influences and on elements in nature, occasionally adding a touch of electronics to the mix. Chuck's newest release, "Crows in the Basilica," is out now on Three Lobed Recordings, with a heavy focus on what he calls "folk minimalism." Chuck Johnson drops by the early part of Irene's show to play some of it live.
