Since releasing his self-titled debut in 2007, Steve Gunn has become an incredibly prolific and consistent songwriter. Schooled in the rootsy, primitive guitar calisthenics of John Fahey and the eastern modal wormholes of sitar players like Ravi Shankar, Gunn’s an expert at weaving dizzying tapestries through jammy guitar freak-outs. Joining Gunn on this West Coast tour is the equally bewitching singer/songwriter Julie Byrne, whose 2017 LP Not Even Happiness is full of contemporary folk tunes with lush, whispered sensitivity, like the stunning opening track “Follow My Voice” and standout “Natural Blue.” Both artists are performing back-to-back evenings at Mississippi Studios this weekend—if you haven’t procured tickets yet, I’d recommend doing so immediately.
