Jack Rose in Concert at The Athenaeum

Since 2001, Jack Rose has pursued his own path in the solo acoustic guitar genre as invented by John Fahey. Like Fahey, Rose draws his inspiration from early rural American musicians like Charley Patton, Skip James and Blind Blake. In addition to those influences he gleans inspiration from Robbie Basho, Ry Cooder, Zia M. Dagar, La Monte Young, Terry Riley.

Jack incorporates all of these elements into his own idiosyncratic style and it is his sound and his alone. Since 2002 he has released 3 critically acclaimed LPs for the Eclipse label, 2 CDs for VHF, and various compilation albums and a live document. From 1995-2006 Rose was a member of the legendary drone / noise / folk group Pelt. Pelt—along with Tower Recordings, UN, Charalambides—was one of the early groups who forged a new sound that combined free improv, drone, traditional folk music in the early to mid nineties, later coined "weird new america" by The Wire's David Keenan in the early oughts.


"His version of [Fahey's] 'Sunflower River Blues' sounds regal, unflappable and complete in the way that, say, Rose's pleasant but somewhat hurried cover of Blind Willie Johnson's 'Dark was the Night, Cold was the Ground' on his first album was not. Truly he is a man full grown, and this is one of the best albums in any genre to come out in 2005." —Bill Meyer on Kensington Blue.
