"The Greatest Guitar Player You've Never Heard”
Washington DC boasts not one, but two guitar players who earned that label - Roy Buchanan and Danny Gatton. Both called the Washington area their home and both were part of a music scene with a uniquely Washington DC sound—a virtuosic blend of rock and roll, jazz, blues, rockabilly, country, and soul. Gatton called it the Anacostia Delta and that legacy lives on.
Anacostia Delta is a forthcoming documentary film honoring the past and showcasing the present of the unique Washington DC music scene — a hugely influential, virtuosic melting pot that flourished in the city and southern Prince George's County, and which still thrives today. From the producers & director of the award winning 2009 PBS documentary Barnstorming.
