Bo Carper

Founding member of New Monsoon, Bo Carper’s rootsy and reflective acoustic guitar style is contrasted by a fiery repertoire of right hand tapping and percussive techniques. His unconventional banjo playing in New Monsoon blends a love of classical Indian music with his deep West Virginia roots. He cites Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Willie McTell as very influential to his fingerstyle guitar playing and attributes great importance to Michael Hedges, Ry Cooder and Steve Tibbetts when discussing contemporary acoustic music.
