Podcast 341: Jamie Stillway & Eric Skye

Two of the Fretboard Journal’s favorite acoustic guitarists – Eric Skye and Jamie Stillway – join us this week for a fun chat about the making of their long-awaited album, ‘Home on the Midrange.’ The project finds these two Pacific Northwesterners flatpicking through reels, waltzes, and jigs on a pair of Santa Cruz guitars. We talk about the gear used to capture the album (a pair of Neumann KM184s), Jamie’s forthcoming “slow, spacey” electric guitar album (which will employ her Maegen Wells archtop), and a lot more.

Learn more about the album here.
