I recently “read the comments” (in this case, replies to a tweet) about Grayson Haver Currin’s article from this week in Arts & Leisure about how solo guitar has long been dominated by white male figures like John Fahey, but that women, nonbinary instrumentalists, and people of colour are bringing new creative energy and much-needed change to the scene.

Remarkable Work of Don Cherry and His Wife and Co-Creator Moki Cherry
The trumpeter Don Cherry and his wife and co-creator Moki Cherry did some remarkable work in Sweden beginning in the late 1960s, according to Giovanni Russonello, who took a look back at their accomplishments.
