New PK Dwyer Blues Album

Busker Do is a twenty-one minute acoustic powerhouse featuring ten original blues, folk and roots tunes written and performed by PK Dwyer.  The album was recorded in live single takes and barely mixed at Garey Shelton Productions.  The end result is a neat little concept album and an illuminating glimpse inside the Buskers Life and into the current mindset of PK Dwyer.  PK's harmonica honks, hoots and trills.  The flat picking and finger picking guitar work is very fine. This album is not slick [although the angry Get Along Well does have a reverb effect].  It is raw and rollicking. The recordings one song featuring slide guitar - Highway 99 - is an ode to the road much traveled upon and a commentary on PK Dwyer's daily life.  Album cover art:  Etchings by Ethan Lind.  Etchings are of PK Dwyer busking performances at Seattle Pike Place Market.

Monday Music: PK Dwyer is a lifelong street musician from Seattle who has traveled all over america playing music in many towns and cities. He sent me his new album "Busker Do" in the mail. It's a solid collection of original folk songs, recorded in a very raw style with guitar, harmonica and voice, in the tradition of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and Ramblin' Jack Elliot. listen for some great picking, clever lyrics and classic harmonica riffs. all delivered with the energy you need to get people to hear you out on the streets, with plenty of subtlety as well.
