CD Review – Craftsman, by Bob Ardern

Bob Ardern is a craftsman, alright, showcasing his craftsmanship as a spot-on composer and performer of sprightly acoustic guitar instrumentals.

The original tunes reflect Ardern's inherent rustic folksiness, which is given a pop lilt thanks to the contributions of class act musicians who are artists in their own right.

Ardern's accompanists include Kev Corbett on bass, bodhran, and percussion; David Findlay on bass, bells, bodhran, celeste, glockenspiel, hi hat, piano, pipe organ, synthesizer pads, and trumpet; and Alyssa Wright on cello.

If you're looking for acoustic guitar music with a pulse, this certainly fits the bill.
