This week’s featured acoustic artist is Gwenifer Raymond who comes recommended to us by Acoustic Tuesday listener Mark Clark H. from Ardre, Gotland. Here’s what Mark Clark has to say about Gwenifer:
“She’s a young up and coming Welsh fingerstyle guitarist who’s influenced by Fahey and other American Primitives, as well as old country blues. She also has a PhD in astrophysics and designs video games in her day job–so pretty interesting bio. Her first LP just came out this year and it rocks deeply, or maybe picks deeply rather?”
I had not heard of Gwenifer prior to Mark Clark recommending her, and HOLY SMOKES I am so happy I picked this artist to check out. Talk about right up my alley….she’s a fingerpicker, paying homage to the American primitive guitar roots that she was brought up listening to, and she adds her own twist. This was a great recommendation.

I hear reflections of Fahey and Sandy Bull when I listen to Gwenifwr Raymond’s “Strange Lights Over Garth Mountain”
