Joel Fafard
Award-winning roots guitarist Joël Fafard is a phenomenal slide and finger style player who writes stirring, melodic compositions that paint pictures as vivid as any song with words. He is that rare breed of instrumentalist: the kind whose appeal reaches far beyond the realm of serious guitar enthusiasts. With his hilarious commentary delivered "farm-boy" style he quickly wins his audience over. He also sounds like a natural blues vocalist, and on his latest album he presents himself as such, singing traditional southern blues songs. 

Watch some of the banter and seriously great playing here on our youtube channel, and a rustic river slide-extravaganza here.
