Subject: RE: Really Good, Unknown Guitarists
Unless you are a habitue of central Canadian folk circles, you haven't heard Terry Tufts, who is a great songwriter and singer as well as a terrific fingerpicker. Y'oughtta.

Another Ottawan you should look for is a woman named Alex Houghton, a protege of Don Ross (please don't say "who?") and sometime student of Pierre Bensusan who composes and plays in her own acoustic guitar world...

Acoustic blues picker? Rick Fines of Peterborough Ontario.

Just crack a search engine with any of these names and see what shows up.
