John Fahey was an American fingerstyle guitarist (and later painter) who lived from 1939 to 2001. He is widely credited as being one of the most influential guitarists of all time. His style incorporated elements from blues, folk and later Indian, Portuguese and Brazilian music. Sligo River Blues appeared on John Fahey’s first album, Blind Joe Death.
