Former Harry Pussy guitarist and local resident Bill Orcutt took a decade-long break from music while pursuing a career as a software engineer. Over the past few years, however, Orcutt has returned as a four-string-acoustic-wielding, blues-inspired madman, carving out intense, raw songs on several releases.

As the video above suggests, I would imagine it’d be pretty gripping seen live, and Orcutt takes to the Porch Stage at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass on Sunday, October 2nd.
