Overview

Overview Celebrating Danny Gatton & Roy Buchanan: Anacostia Delta Band and Friends

"THE GREATEST GUITAR PLAYER YOU'VE NEVER HEARD”—THE WASHINGTON POST

That's how the press labeled regionally adored, musically heralded, the late guitarist Danny Gatton. Gatton’s sound exemplifies what he dubbed the Anacostia Delta; a righteous blend of rock and roll, jazz, blues, rockabilly, country, and soul born of the Washington D.C. cultural melting pot.

Gatton, along with guitarists like Roy Buchanan, were pioneers of the Fender Telecaster sound. The music scene they championed was hugely influential and it thrives today—admired by musicians worldwide but barely recognized at home.Tonight, the Anacostia Delta Band, which includes Gatton's old rhythm section (John Previti and Barry Hart) lay down regional guitar sounds from then and now and remind audiences why these guitar masters are so adored. The front line is three supremely talented telecaster guitarists: Joel Harrison and David Chappell both grew up listening to Gatton, while Anthony Pirog represents the younger generation planting new seed in this fertile soil.
