Joe Rollin Porter (from the album Take This Hammer available on Joropo Records)
Clean picking is the choice for Joe Rollin Porter as the guitar man offers his unique playing style for a packet of traditional tunes in his recent release, Take This Hammer. He backs his love letter to “Peggy-O” with soft harmony and finger-picking, rushes the pace to head to London with “Jackaroe”, trots alongside “Black Jack Davy” as he makes love promises, sweetly sings out “Corinna Blues”, and sits down to strum out a song for “Saro Jane”. Cleveland, Ohio-based Joe Rollin Porter recorded Take This Hammer at Inside Out Studio in Sparta, Illinois. Notes twirl as Joe Rollin Porter waves farewell in “Bye, Bye Baby Blues”, shuffles to mark the time on “From Four Until Late”, and puts some Country into “Bound to Ride” as Take This Hammer takes a swing in “Spike Driver Blues”.
