Acoustic guitarist to perform Friday

CHAMPAIGN — Daniel Bachman, who describes himself as an American primitive acoustic guitarist, will perform at 8 p.m. Friday at the Indi Go Artist Co-op, 9 E. University Ave., C.

Bachman, who's in his 20s, uses a fingerpicking technique developed by John Fahey and expanded by Robbie Basho and, later, Jack Rose and Glenn Jones. Born and raised in Fredericksburg, Va., Bachman has been playing what he describes as "psychedelic Appalachia" since he was a teenager, with a sound that evolved from drones and banjos to a guitar-centered focus. Touring off and on since the age of 17, Bachman has played throughout the U.S.

Also at Indi Go, "Jodi Adams: Art of Intention," will go on view Friday, with the opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday. The work will remain on view through May 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

"Art of Intention" combines text with image, offering an introspective glimpse of our own inner landscape in the sublime context of nature. The exhibit includes photographs of yoga practitioners in natural settings such as the Salt Lake of Utah, Twin Falls, Idaho, and in Champaign-Urbana.

As a yoga instructor and practitioner, Adams continues to explore her own dharma, or personal calling. As a photographer, Adams uses art to showcase the deeper dimensions of the human experience within a visual context.
