Live performance by 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 dropped by Irene's show to play some of it live.

A rare Monday off, I get to be here! : )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Irene Trudel:

Hi Folks! Glad to be here with you all as always. Chuck Johnson is on his way and will be playing live sometime after 12:30pm (a little early, so he can catch a plane home).
  12:06pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Looking forward to hearing Chuck Johnson

  12:30pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

What a set, fabulous, Irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Irene Trudel:

@RevolutionRabbit and anyone else tuning in, glad you could join me live today!
  Swag For Life Member 1:03pm 12539:

Sounding good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah - sounds great now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- miking acoustic not always easy, of course
- great tone (not to be nerdy - but what kind of guitar?)
- & great picking obviously (almost 'ragtimey' on 'Albion')...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'ragtimey' rhythm, maybe (not the song)
- good interview, & a lovely player - great technique, but in service of composing...

Sitting on the beach in the sunset and listening to Chuck's amazing music. He's wonderful
Avatar 1:26pm Chris from DC:

Wow, yeah this is nice.
  1:27pm king george:

hi yair - sitting in a cafe in tel aviv also listening ... did anyone catch the name of the guitar manufacturer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Larrivee :
- & said there's a Guild 12-string in the studio.
  1:29pm Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Israel,Earth,Milky Way):

@king George-hi ;) No I haven't , i can ask Chuck
  1:30pm Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Israel,Earth,Milky Way):

My loyal 12 string guitar is Larrivee. Amazing guitars
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks @Revolution Rabbit! That 12-sting Guild is coming up next.
Avatar 1:34pm Chris from DC:

Haven't heard his more minimal stuff, this is beautiful.
  Swag For Life Member 1:35pm 12539:

Chuck has an ear for sound.
  1:37pm gi:

are u sure that last piece was "Fathoms"? on Soundclud a differnt tune...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Irene Trudel:

@gi, here you are (plus may more sound files from Chuck): soundcloud.com...
  1:40pm gi:

..I'm on that page and can't locate the tune you played Irene
  1:42pm gi:

* the one with the crystal bow/bell sounds before the Crows piece)
is not what is entitled "Fathom" at Soundcloud-
Avatar 1:45pm Chris from DC:

Is Chuck putting out any of this electronic stuff sometime?
  Swag For Life Member 1:48pm 12539:

@gi: Irene's link goes straight to the correct piece.
  1:49pm gi:

great, thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Irene Trudel:

@gi, I just put up the page and it's the sound file at the top. Pops right up for me. @Van, Chuck mentioned he would be putting some of this out in the fall. I'll see if I can get a link. Meanwhile, his website appears to be broken but you can check it out later at www.chuckjohnson.net
Avatar 1:57pm Chris from DC:

I'll be looking forward to this one.
  Swag For Life Member 1:58pm 12539:

Thanks, Irene and Chuck.
  2:27pm ian:

Enjoyed Chuck, both his guitar and electronics!
  2:40pm Robert:

Before I heard the lyric, I thought it was going to say, "The Battle of Verdun"! And the Union involved being the UK.
  2:44pm Robert:

And of course, I thought the song was being very bitter, maybe sarcastic, the POV being that of the Irish shortly after the World War, fighting for their independence.
  2:45pm Robert:

Get it? "Where would your Union be...?"
  2:56pm ian:

Cold After the Rain...Thanks Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Irene Trudel:

@ian, you're quite welcome! Thanks everybody for tuning in today. Catch you next Monday at noon, and Lapland plays live.
  3:00pm Robert:

Checking it out, I see it's unlikely there would've been Irish fighting at Verdun, but rather at the Somme, an imperfect rhyme.
Avatar 8:42am Van in DC:

I'm remembering the past from the present, courtesy archive genie at FMU.
Avatar 8:47am Van in DC:

@Irene - I know you meant Chris but I also will most likely be looking forward to the Fall...and I haven't even listened to his music yet lol :)
  9:43am Lee:

Amazing, thank you!
  11:45am tlearned:

FELT are local New Jersey boys....so glad to hear it on FMU....wootwoot
Avatar 12:56pm Van in DC:

Fantastic show, thank you much Irene!
