Currently listening to William Elliott Whitmore. Was blown away, sorta mixing John Prine and Townes Van Zandt to channel an old black man playing/singing the blues on a general store front porch. Found him by accident, immediately bought the album MP3 download on Amazon. He has a very unusual banjo technique, a five string with the fifth string removed, tuned tenor and played with an unusual mix of finger picking and chordal strumming. Kinda fits his songwriting style though.
