    Kelly Joe Phelps' guitar playing recalls the slide work of Fred McDowell and Robert Pete Williams, the fingerpicking of John Hurt and Rev. Gary Davis, and the folk-revival work of John Fahey and Leo Kottke. As a sideman, he has backed Rory Block, Martin Simpson, Greg Brown, Tim O'Brien, Tony Furtado, and Bo Ramsey. As a soloist and composer, he has produced eleven albums of his own, most recently "Brother Sinner and the Whale," a collection of intensely personal songs that take off from the Biblical story of Jonah and "recall the vintage gospel blues of the Mississippi John Hurt variety with aspects of the Monroe Brothers thrown in for good measure."

    Special guest Peter Mulvey's songbag is stuffed with elegant, guitar-driven originals, but he also has a soft spot for classic American Standards and their modern descendants: from Gershwin, Hoagy Charmicale, and Cole Porter to Randy Newman, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, and Paul Cebar, with side trips to the lands of Willie Nelson and Prince. Acoustic Guitar magazine calls him "poetic and hip." Who could ask for anythign more?
