Gary Davis and Elizabeth Cotton; deceased musicians whose influence seems only to grow with time. His first solo recording Bull Frog Blues established his blues credentials while his sophomore effort Ragtime Millionaire strengthened his association with the Carolina-piedmont styles of blues. His most recent release Ragged But Right stretches out to explore more facets of American folk music including old-time, country, jazz, ragtime and early popular music as well as piedmont style blues selections. Lightnin' remains an insatiable student and researcher, studying the various forms of American roots music from bygone eras. He plays a number of instruments besides the guitar including the harmonica, ukulele, mandolin and banjo. Read more on Last.fm.
