Multiple Juno Award-winning artist and producer Steve Dawson returns with an album of all-new acoustic instrumental guitar music, accompanied on half the album by a string quartet arranged and led by Steve's old partner in crime, Jesse Zubot. The rest of the album includes solo pieces and duets with John Reischman and Charlie McCoy.
“It is inspiring to hear modern instrumental music for guitar that is articulated within true song form. Steve Dawson’s new album conjures the ghost of John Fahey for me – not in imitation, but by way of joining a tradition and then extending its range. I find this song cycle to be intelligent and challenging; joyful and deeply romantic; both earthy and untethered. It is affirming – and music to which I shall soon be returning.” - Joe Henry
"Steve Dawson’s Lucky Hand is a beautiful, genre-stretching collection of guitar instrumentals — moods from joyful to poignant, expressed through some of the coolest fingerpicking you’re likely to hear. The sweet slide playing is framed intermittently, and effectively, by the presence of imaginatively constructed string arrangements and some tasty harmonica. Check it out!" - Bruce Cockburn
