The story of Elizabeth Cotten is a strange one. Her first album was released in 1957 at the age of 62. She was therefore born in 1895. At the age of 8, she learnt to play the banjo. She then picked up a right-handed guitar which she played left-handed but with the strings in reverse, like Jimi Hendrix but not quite so loud. This guitar was soon put to the side as she became a housemaid at the age of 12, a mother at the age of 15, and then was employed to work in-house as a nanny at the residence of musicologist Charles Seeger (the father of Pete, Mike and Puffy, great names in folk). It was Charles Seeger who helped Elizabeth release her first album on the label Folkways, which she had mostly recorded quietly at home. And against all expectations, the record became a classic, most notably for its track Freight Train and its folk-blues chorus which became a huge hit in England and cemented its position in history. Until 1970, Elizabeth Cotten continued to work, performing concerts and releasing records. As a self-taught guitarist she developed a picking style that was both virtuoso and soft, melodic and liberated, and serves as an example to learners of folk guitar today. Whether instrumental or sang in her wavering voice, her peaceful music reminds one of Mississippi John Hurt: the crème de la crème of  folk-blues. © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

Americana, las raíces de Norteamérica

Aunque esta etiqueta surgida por exigencias del marketing pueda resultar un tanto confusa, lo cierto es que Americana es el útil nombre que sirve para referirse desde hace dos décadas a la fusión de rock, country, blues y rhythm&blues. Y, como en las mejores familias, en este género hay lugar para todos: para la hija rebelde, el cuñado enterado, el padre alterado, la prima intensa, etc.

Mark Knopfler y Dire Straits, un amor difícil

El 14 de abril de 2018, los Dire Straits entraron en el Rock and Roll Hall of Fame y muchos fueron los que pensaron que era en el momento justo. Incluso Mark Knopfler parecía conmovido por este honor, esperando ser entronizado como Bob Dylan o Eric Clapton. Al final, Dire Straits entró en el panteón de los rockeros sin su estrella, que eludió una de las ceremonias más tristes de la historia. Fue como un símbolo de la relación que mantiene con su grupo.

Guy Clark, poeta y trovador

Venerado por Johnny Cash y por muchos otros, permaneció prácticamente en la sombra hasta su muerte, hace dos años, en mayo de 2016. ¿Cuál fue la trayectoria de Guy Clark, inmenso songwriter tejano, retratista fuera de serie y trovador de gutural voz cuyas composiciones fueron interpretadas por los más grandes del country y el folk?
