There is an underlying familiarity to Ian Fitzgerald‘s music.
The elements of Fitzgerald’s style and the manner in which he works – utilizing the individual threads of traditional folk as a cornerstone on which his immense creativity builds – generates an intensely wondrous and engaging tapestry, thick with interwoven allegory and symbolism yet grounded in the subtleness of a soft-spoken songwriter.
So, what is his style, his natural and intrinsic spirit – his Grecian pneuma?
Ian writes with a beautiful and elegant simplicity (unlike this author). His sounds evoke an historical tranquility, and send a perfect polyphony of harmony, understanding, and comfort, pulsing throughout the veins of musician & listener alike.
I highly recommend considering this unassumingly quiet and bearded fellow’s music. You will be able to find him endlessly touring around the Northeast, if you’re not in the NE try Bandcamp or his personal website.
And now you know.
