A Drop of the Pure
Steve Baughman

Tall Tree Records

With liner notes by Pierre Bensusan

In recent years, the guitar as back-up instrument in Celtic music has changed. Top American players including El McMeen from New Jersey, Steve Baughman and Tom Long from California, along with Pat Kirtley from Kentucky, David Surette from Maine, and John Sherman from Ohio have joined with England's John Renbourn and Martin Simpson, France's Pierre Bensusan, and Italy's Franco Morone, in growing the body of recorded work that includes Irish music. ...What sets these guitarists apart from their rhythm counterparts is that they play finger-style. They use their fingers rather than a flat pick to pluck notes from their instrument. In the course of developing this distinctive body of guitar music called Celtic finger-style, they have produced an almost bewildering number of guitar tunings and stretched the instrument's repertoire and use far beyond that of a rhythm instrument in a band... It's similar in fact to the resurgence in interest in the ancient harp music of Ireland. ... Celtic finger-style guitar playing is riding a similar wave of interest.
