Soffty Fasnfftof - A Concept Record! Some Old Folk for the Young Folk; & Some New Folk for the Old Folk
NAMMY Nominated poet/songwriter/producer Marco Frucht's Debut Folk Fulllength CD. Release date 12apr12.
This record essentially represents a life's work in Ethnomusicology, musical folk art, americana, and classical music with a main focus (no, really an obsession) on guitar.
"...showcases three crucial facets of my life that I've stuck with since at least as early as thirteen years of age. Classical guitar, every other kind of guitar, and poetics. I only sing in an effort to get all this to you."
The song "Frybread" (Track 6; 2:39) has been nominated for a NAMMY (Native American Music Award) and is prenominated for an ISMA (Indian Summer Music Award). Marco and his career are nominated for a Whalie Award (New London, Konetiuk's local mini grammys) in the Best Solo Singer/Songwriter category.
Shouts and Gr33tz to Snark Tuners, Zinky amps and the only new guitar purchases anymore are Navatone and Godin. Also, I wish to shout out the members of Sledge Grits Band, Keiko, Ella, Mimi and Bo-Pah!
