Flora Molton

不思議とギターエヴァンジェリストに惹かれるのであります。
熱く語りかけるような歌い方だからでしょうか。

Rev. Gary Davis や Blind Willie Johnson 同様未知の領域に足
を踏み入れるには邪念を捨てて神に使えなあかんのでしょうな。

”Blues Houseparty” って動画に Flora Molton が歌ってる姿を発
見しましたが、今の所これが動いている姿を見れる唯一の動画かも
しれません。



Born 1908, Virginia, USA, d. 31 May 1990, Washington DC, USA. Molton began preaching at the age of 17, not taking up guitar until 1943, when she moved to Washington DC. Virtually blind, she supported herself by playing in the streets. From 1963, she made appearances on the folk circuit, and was later signed by a European record company when she visited Europe in 1987. Her slide guitar playing in "Vastopol" (open D) was basic but intense, owing much to the blues whose verbal content she fiercely rejected. Her delivery was generally reminiscent of an unsophisticated Sister Rosetta Tharpe, particularly when Molton was assisted by more skilful musicians.
