Bill Orcutt to Play Ottawa

The former guitarist of Miami noise-rockers Harry Pussy, Bill Orcutt brings his tenacious and experimental/blues/folk instrumental guitar stylings to Ottawa on Monday, June 6th. A friend gave me a copy of his 2009 release "A New Way to Pay Old Debts" and I tell ya simply....."Holy shit" !! This dude plays a four string acoustic guitar with an over the edge rawness that blends the best John Fahey with Richard Bishop and confronts the grey matter with a noisy, jagged and bent approach to roots oriented music. What a great album. Go see Bill Orcutt at Raw Sugar on Somerset St. near Preston on Monday June 6th. Orcutt is in Ottawa only cuz he's playing the Suoni Festival in thankful !
