Fat Knuckle Freddy | Out of the Blue Livestream Series
Saturday - March, 20 @ 7:00pm
Thank you for joining OUT OF THE BLUE featuring Fat Knuckle Freddy!
Fat Knuckle Freddy is not your typical artist as he has a split musical personality.
Personality One is a solo guitarist in the style of American Primitive, which was coined by the late John Fahey. The music is intimate while being "hauntingly beautiful" at the same time. FKF uses a slide to obtain the true primitive sound while incorporating influences from classical composers.
Personality Two is a singer and slide guitarist playing fretless, cigar box and shovel guitars with a drummer. The duo is Demon Blues. FKF's fretless guitars are unique as they have a bass string added to the open tuning, which fills out the duo's sound and gives the illusion of a bass player. The duo is known for playing three hour sets without a break.
Fat Knuckle Freddy got his name when he broke and dislocated his fretboard pinkie at the middle knuckle. It's now the size of a thumb knuckle and points a few degrees outward. This gives FKF a little extra stretch on the fretboard but he mostly covers it with his stunning slide.
