kaki king

Anyone else catch Kaki King on Jools Holland a week or two ago? I mentioned it on this blog a few days ago, and downloaded an old LP, but until now I'd not got round to checking out her stuff on Youtube. I'm glad I did, as there's a bunch of great performances, including the Later performance that caught my eye, and some truly dazzling guitar playing. The clip below is, alas, cut short, but it's super stuff.

Am I alone in being really impressed? I don't normally go for guitar virtuosos (even pretty ones) but something about her loose, rhythmical and non-showy style really appeals.
