SXSW Song Of The Day: Harry Taussig – Rondo In D On Southern Themes

This March, countless young new bands will be flocking to Austin hoping to make their big break.  Some will be relative novices, only having played a handful of shows and looking to prove themselves.  That story will likely be  fairly common one at SXSW.  That story is not Harry Taussig’s story.  Taussig, a contemporary of John Fahey who plays a similar style of American Primitive guitar, released his first album, Fate Is Only Once, back in 1965 and is just now releasing his sophomore effort, Fate Is Only Twice.  Not only that, but Taussig will be performing his first ever live show at SXSW. 

Harry Taussig plays at 8:00 PM at St. David’s Bethel Hall on Thursday, March 14.
