If you think you haven’t heard anything like Dawson since the middle period of Takoma Records golden age, you are correct sir! A cat that can hold his own against young Leo Kottke, he is a long time award winner in his native Canada. Dawson has relocated to Nashville and if nothing else, he can establish himself in the competitive session scene there in a heartbeat. Whether hippie granola eater or acoustic guitar fan, Dawson delivers great listening throughout. If this is “American primitive guitar” then let’s all go back to the Stone Age. Killer stuff that’s simply a cut above.
