“Lotus has an amazing ability that I have never heard in another musician…he can evoke the collective canon of American Folk music; old-time hillbilly, country twang, blues and early jazz all within a phrase of music with his banjo and voice. Libba Cotton, Leon Redbone and Little-Hat Jones all seem to preside, mingling with Geeshie Wiley, Charley Patton and Etta Baker. A must-have for any work-shop programmer..Lotus Wight can workshop for days on dozens of subjects; jaw-harp, hambone, crooked banjo tunes, country blues, west-African gourd instruments, bass harmonica playing and more.”
