Sacred Harp was the performing name for finger-style phenom Daniel Bachman before he began releasing music under his own name around 2011. “Rappahannock (JR)” comes off his debut LP, Apparitions at the Kenmore Plantation put out by the French Label Hands in the Dark. Though he primarily performs and records as a solo artists, he released Taman Shud with jazz/experimental percussionist Ian McColm, who releases his own material under the name I.G.M. As a teenager, Bachman befriended fellow guitarist Jack Rose, who died at only 38 years old. Soon after, his final record, Luck in the Valley was released by Thrill Jockey with cover art by Daniel Bachman. Check out a great live performance he gave for NPR in the family estate of Robert E.
