PK Dwyer 2016 Blues Release

Released June 1, 2016
King Pin Head Music

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.
