    If you consider yourself an expert on folk but aren't familiar with Dave Evans, it isn't surprising. The acoustic guitarist never became well known, although not because of a lack of talent -- Evans' facility is obvious on 1974's SAD PIG DANCE, his first session for Kicking Mule. On this unaccompanied solo guitar outing (which was produced by Stefan Grossman), Evans' focus is instrumental folk that incorporates elements of rock and Mississippi Delta blues. The British guitarist plays with a lot of warmth and feeling on such reflective, earthy originals as "Sun and Moon," "Morocco John," and "Raining Cats and Dogs," and he is equally appealing on Bert Jansch's "Veronica" and jazz improviser Jimmy Giuffre's "The Train and the River," which lends itself nicely to a folk setting.

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (12/99-1/00, p.65) - "...Evans is not only a splendid technical guitarist...but also a masterful composer, creating winsome soundscapes....[He] sounds unlike any other guitarist..."
