"If you’re raised in California there’s only one place that can top that for a budding singer/songwriter, so Margo Cilker headed for South Carolina to add some Appalachian roots to her heartfelt songs. With The Band, John Prine and Kate Wolf as inspiration she’s upholding the American troubadour tradition in fine style."
- John Blakeley (Bristol, UK)
An American Forrest
An American Forrest
An American Forrest is Western music. Country and folk. Ragged-voiced tales and wild, hybrid style, finger-picked and strummed guitar. Poetic incantations that conjure images: a lone rider silhouetted against a sunset, the days fading light, the unspoken bond between horses and people. Songs as detailed as tooled leather about old love, and new frontiers. An American Forrest is the words and music of Forrest Van Tuyl. Lyrics fly upwards from his songs like sparks from a fire. Verses come delivered with the humor of cowboy poets. His riffs have the wood-and-wire wrangling prowess of the folk singers of the second revival. The sensation of his songs hang around like smoke long after the night is gone.
