Known as the father of American primitive guitar, many consider John Fahey to be a foundational figure in American folk music. As both musician and musicologist, Fahey made a fundamental contribution to our understanding and appreciation of such music genres as Delta blues, Appalachian bluegrass, and New Orleans jazz. Includes interviews with Pete Townshend, Joey Burns of Calexico, Chris Funk of the Decembrists, and radio personality Dr. Demento, performances, and archival footage with animation.
