Rattlesnake Cage

Steve Dawson is known as one of our best roots music producers (seven albums he has produced have won Junos!), and also as a virtuoso guitarist. That latter side is showcased on superb new solo guitar instrumental record Rattlesnake Cage. A single vintage tube microphone is used to capture fluent and crisp playing on acoustic, National and Hawaiian guitars. The result is a subtle and mellow album evoking John Fahey and Leo Kottke. We recommend the vinyl version. Now Nashville-based, Dawson will tour western Canada in March. Dates at his website
