After the tribute albums for Son House and Rev. Gary Davis among others, the 65-year-old Rory Block dedicated an album to the legend Mississippi John Hurt, which stands in the context of fingerpicking folk and delta blues. Her soulful singing, her fantastic acoustic picking passages and the mix of her own songs, traditionals and, of course, titles from Hurt have been transformed with charm and intensity. They are often reminiscent of the heyday of Stefan Grossman. An unbeatable listening pleasure!
