I never got the chance to meet Etta Baker but was a long time fan of her music even before I started to work at the Music Maker Relief Foundation. Her style of guitar playing is the most eloquent and parred down that I have ever heard. Only after listening after many years of listening to Etta did I truly grasp the complexity of her playing. Most have heard of the Piedmont Blues Guitar style but non one played it quite like Etta Baker did.
