FGM Podcast 59 with Eli West

In this podcast Flatpicking Guitar Magazine editor Dan Miller caught up with Eli West at the Grand Targhee Music Camp back in August of 2014. Eli was featured in the November/December 2012 issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. Since that time he has continued to perform and record with his musical partner Cahalen Morrison, but he is also now involved with Jayme Stone's Lomax Project. Dan and Eli talk about this new project and more during their visit and you'll get to hear a cut from his newest CD with Cahalen. I hope you enjoy this edition of the Flatpicking Guitar Magazine Podcast.

FGM Podcast 58 with Roy Andrade

Welcome you to the another edition of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine's podcast. In the podcast Flatpicking Guitar Magazine editor Dan Miller will be talking with Roy Andrade.  Roy is an assistant professor at East Tennessee State University.  He and Doc Watson's daughter Nancy have released an incredible 4 CD set of Doc Watson material along with a 73-page hard bound book that tells the story of the Watson family and the tunes that are on the CDs.  The project is titled "Milestones: Legends of The Doc Watson Clan."  The large majority of this material was recorded at the Watson home by either Doc or Nancy and has never been heard outside of this collection.  Dan met up with Roy at the Grand Targhee Music camp and they talked about the project.  We hope you enjoy listening to their conversation.  To find out more about this project, visit:  http://www.openrecordsmusic.com/

Welcome to Flatpicking Guitar Magazine's Network!

Flatpicking Guitar Magazine is a bi-monthly periodical, and companion audio CD, dedicated to presenting all aspects of the art of flatpicking the acoustic guitar as pioneered by such great guitarists as Doc Watson, Clarence White, Norman Blake, Tony Rice, and Dan Crary. Our goal is to help you increase your own skill level and enjoyment of this fine art as it pertains to the musical genres of bluegrass, old-time, folk, Celtic, Western swing, gypsy jazz, new acoustic music, and acoustic rock. To that end, the magazine primarily focuses on guitar instruction. We also feature articles on rhythm guitar playing, guitar building and maintenance, and we also review flatpicking CDs and instructional books and videos. This network page is a place to share flatpicking news, photos, new music, videos, and more.
