From the recording Waiting For The Call
Peter May is one of North Carolina’s most skilled disciples of acoustic Piedmont-style blues. So it hardly comes as a surprise that his “You Are Sacred” stands as a feel-good, quasi-religious song that would snugly fit within the catalog of Rev. Gary Davis. May’s finger-tangling picking is authentically daunting, and the hill-country addition of tuba smartly carries May’s acoustic track into territory once championed by Taj Mahal. Blues salvation at its most arresting.
