STRINGS, MICS AND OTHER THINGS
Church acoustics are evident on Driftwood’s third album
When Dan Forsyth left upstate New York and moved to Colorado around 2001, he was looking for a change of scenery. What he found was a new musical direction, which he brought back home and used as the foundation for what would become Driftwood.
“I took an old acoustic guitar out there with me,” Forsyth recalls, “and my roommate was a big bluegrass fan. It was a combination of not having an amplifier, not having a band to play with, getting into this music and this roommate loading me up with people I had never heard of, like Doc Watson and Bill Monroe.”
