Fahey is known as 'the father of American Primitive Guitar.' Some think of him as a foundational figure in American folk music. Fahey himself, however, insisted 'I am not a volk, how can I be a volk? I'm from the suburbs.' All jesting aside, Fahey, as both musician and musicologist, made a fundamental contribution to the global understanding of classical American musics such as Delta blues, Appalachian bluegrass and New Orleans jazz.
