Bill MacKay: Esker LP
Bill MacKay's a guitar picker, a multi-instumentalist and a veteran of Chicago collaborations including Darts & Arrows and duos with Rob Frye (Bitchin Bajas), Sam Wagstaff (The Cairo Gang), Frank Rosaly and Ryley Walker, among many others.
Esker is his second proper solo album, a collection of peace-inducing instrumental compositions that highlight Bill's fluidity with the glass slide. The video for "Aster" should adequately demonstrate Bill's ability mining ephemeral and timeless spirit moods. Put Esker with like-minded forward-reaching instrumental Americana from William Tyler, Daniel Bachman, Jack Rose and other esteemed individualists!
