One of the absolute greats of the Psych Folk genre. Exuma was part of the whole Greenwich village folk revival in the '60s and '70s. His music combines a great deal of influences and defies category.

This is for all you outsider free jazz banjo fans. As for the rest of you, listen to this anyways. It's good for you. Daniel Higgs is the former and sometimes current lead singer of Dischord post hardcore band Lungfish.
