  Dan Arborise is a young folk guitar player who sounds a lot like John Martyn. He has been described as "John Martyn meets Nick Drake for the 21st century". He calls what he plays "instrumental ambient music" and is highly influenced by the collaborations of Robert Fripp and Brian Eno and their 'frippertronics'. Here's a link to his myspace page which has 7 tracks: http://www.myspace.com/arborise

  A great example of the influence frippertronics has on him but unfortunately is not listed on his myspace page and I could not find on youtube is the last track on his most recent album Tide and Trails: "Feet in the Sea, Head in the Stars"

Probably the best example of why he should be included in prog folk on the link I gave is Cries. A fantastic song, one of my favorites of his.

This reminds me of Andy McKee mixed with John Gomm. Both phenomenal guitarists and magnificent musicians, but this kind of music, although I am a huge fan, is not really fit for the prog folk category.

Truly beautiful music, though, thank you for introducing me to it.
