Ari Eisinger is one of the most dazzling country blues and ragtime guitarists playing today. Listen to his astonishing performances of the music of Blind Blake and you will hear things no guitar player has managed to pull off since Blake himself disappeared in the early 1930s. The sportin' right hand, the piano rhythms, the notes everybody else leaves out - they're all there.
"One of the finest fingerpickers I've heard anywhere," "One of the top guitarists in the country," "One of the finest interpreters of traditional blues and ragtime" - these are just a few of the reactions from critics and fellow musicians to Ari's remarkable way with the blues of the 1920s and '30s. Able to shift effortlessly from complex East Coast ragtime to the propulsive rhythm of the guitar evangelists to down-home Texas country blues, Ari is one of the most authentic musicians you are ever likely to encounter.
