I was checking a file with some old links and came across a guitar player did not remember particularly until I listed to some of her music again. Vicky Genfan. Her style of playing is quite eclectic and I recalled at the time I had never heard anything quite like it. Amazing technique and very percussive playing.
Check out this video taken during the 2005 guitar festival in Italy.
I was also particularly blown away by this performance in which she sings and plays the banjo. It is just amazing her percussive techniques give this special sound when played on a banjo. Incredible.
