CRITIC’S PICK: Acclaimed banjo master turned searing guitarist seemed unstoppable from the mid-90’s to the mid-00s. His albums captured the best of Americana with terrific songs, intricate playing and a sound that appealed to the jam community as well as those more attuned to bluegrass/blues roots. But he sort of fell off the map and seemed to put the brakes on whatever momentum he had acquired. It’s great to have him back, even solo, to hear what he’s up to and watch those fingers fly. — Hal Horowitz
