Nathan Salsburg - Third

Record of the Week is Third, the beautiful new album from Louisville folk guitarist Nathan Salsburg.

The functionally titled (yes, it is his third solo LP) album is an evocative and elegant collection of ten instrumental tracks that display his incredible dexterity but also a warmth that is impossible not to be completely bowled over by. He has recently been collaborating with Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Jim Elkington and of course with Joan Shelley (a genuine highlight of our 2016 Sea Change Festival), but with all those wonderful musical commitments aside, it's a real joy to have the solo record that we wanted him to make, nothing but the man and his guitar... it's pretty much perfect.
