Guitarist Gwenifer Raymond: Instrumental Tales of Old Weird Wales


Welsh guitarist Gwenifer Raymond tells tales without words with her fast and aggressive fingerpicking - adapting “American Primitive” style for "old weird Wales." The fast and aggressive part might be due to her having played in punk bands, but her musical roots extend to the blues, opera, and folk, while leaning into the darkness, goth imagery, and British paganism - and sometimes there's blood. She joins us from Brighton, England to play tunes from her new record, Strange Lights Over Garth Mountain, recorded at home during lockdown. -Caryn Havlik Set list “Gwaed Am Gwaed,” “Eulogy for Dead French Composers” “Hell For Certain”

Podcast 212: Guitarist Gwenifer Raymond

The Fretboard Journal Guitar Podcast

Brighton, England’s Gwenifer Raymond joins us on this week’s podcast. Raymond started playing guitar and drumming in punk and rock bands, but eventually stumbled upon Appalachian music, pre-war blues and John Fahey. Since then, she picked up a PhD, became a video game programmer and has just released her first album of Fahey-inspired American Primitive music, You Never Were Much of a Dancer (Tompkins Square). It’s a fascinating journey that we cover on today’s podcast, as well as her choice in gear and much more. This episode is sponsored by Lee Valley, Retrofret Vintage Guitars and Dying Breed Music.
