Acoustic Guitar Sessions Presents Valerie June
AG continues its video series, Acoustic Guitar Sessions, today with Tennessee-born folk singer Valerie June, who performs a song from her critically acclaimed fourth album, Pushin' Against a Stone.
We caught up with June in the upstairs poster room at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco. She talked about her Carter Family and Mississippi John Hurt influences; being nurtured early on by the great Norman and Nancy Blake; and falling in love with her little Triple-O Martin.
Best of all, June played a smoking, raw version of her song “Workin' Woman Blues.” Look for a AG’s interview with the singer in the June issue (naturally) of Acoustic Guitar mag, and until then, check out more on June's career and recordings at her website.
