As Upon the Road Thereto

As Upon the Road Thereto finds Patrick McKinney (AKA Langtry), early member of Iron & Wine, alone with his guitar, cranking out loose yet mind-bogglingly technical compositions that tread the same path traveled by Richard Bishop (solo and with SGC), Jack Rose and of course John Fahey, & presented with a distinctly Floridian worldview.
