Known for witty lyrics and unhinged guitar-picking, Delmark Goldfarb is heard worldwide on folk, blues and country radio. Among his admirers are heavyweights such as Billy Joe Shaver and John Sebastian, and others found at the junction of “outlaw” meets “jug band.”
“The best new writer of good-time music,” according to former Lovin’ Spoonful frontman Sebastian, who has added accompaniment on occasion. On the more topical side, Del’s tune “Portable Man” is ranked in the Top 60 at Neil Young’s “Songs of The Times” website, among the more than 3,500 posted songs.
“Portable Man” was also selected for Appleseed Records’ “Give Us Your Poor” compilation, along with artists such as Bonnie Raitt and Bruce Springsteen. On the silver screen, Del currently appears in the new jug band documentary, Chasin’ Gus’ Ghost.
A recent music review (Kingston Daily Freeman) cited Del’s all-original solo cd “a must-have for any purist.”
