Strong Reviews for Scott Ainslie ’74

Several newspaper reviews up in New England have been extolling the blues guitar sounds of Washington and Lee alumnus Scott Ainslie, Class of 1974. Much of the attention is based on the 2008 release of Ainslie’s fifth CD, Thunder’s Mouth. The title comes from Shakespeare but the setting and body of the song were inspired by slave narratives from the Nashville, Tenn., area. Just last week a newspaper in Portland, N.H., headlined a story about an Ainslie appearance this way: “Get in to hear this guitarist.” Here is a link to the title track on Ainslie’s CD, Thunder’s Mouth. You can also watch a YouTube video of Ainslie performing in Memphis:
