I was immediately enthralled with Etta Baker’s playing. I love her slow melodies with every note having a resounding purpose. It is if she plays with a “less is more” style that grasps the melody. Her style of Piedmont blues and the longevity of her career under relative obscurity made her exactly the type of subject I wanted. Her wrinkled and scarred hands tell a story of a woman who played music for the pure enjoyment of the music, as she worked for many years, not as a musician, but in a textile mill while raising nine children. She has been a real inspiration for me by proving that someone can still be out playing music, performing, doing what they love at age ninety. She continued to play until her death in 2006 at age 93.
