toby hay - the waterfall

british fingerstyle picker toby hay, who's album 'guitar II (the st harmon sessions)' i featured here a good while ago, is back with a great new tune called 'the waterfall', a preview track from an upcoming EP on cambrian records. hay's picking remains folksy but classically minded, but this new track includes some more fleshed out instrumentation that recalls the windswept granduer of the british isles meeting the spaciousness of fertile crescent deserts. beginning with the droning accompaniment of a hurdy gurdy or something like it, the song explodes into an eastern sounding theme with horns and big percussion sounds.

'the marteg EP' is due out october 16th on cambrian records.
