John Fahey (1939 – 2001) was an American finger-style guitarist, musicologist, record label pioneer and founder of the American Primitive style of guitar playing. This idiom incorporates elements of Delta blues, folk, bluegrass, classical, avant-garde and Indian music.
The Man from Atlantis is the moniker for guitarist Mike Sill (Ray of Creation, Imperial Leatherman). His debut album VOL 1 will be released by Ramble Records in August. He will play songs from Fahey's first 4 albums, a few later oddities, associated Elizabeth Cotton tracks and several original Fahey-inspired tracks.
