Yair Yona

Michael turned me onto this Takoma-style acoustic guitar player from Israel, who has a really excellent album called Remember. It's heavily indebted to Fahey, and to a very American set of folk and blues influences, but if you listen closely, you'll also hear a little bit of the Middle East and maybe Russia as well. (It's on a label called "Anova," which may or may not be another way of saying "self-released" but in any case, you can get it through CD Baby.)

Here's Yair playing "Brave Walls" at a folk festival in Tel Aviv.
