Thread Name: Steve Gillette and Cindy Mangsen. Wow!
Subject: RE: Steve Gillette and Cindy Mangsen. Wow!
I have known Steve since he was a kid (like me !!) playing the folk clubs in SoCal in the late 50's and early 60's. He was GREAT then and became even greater when he and Cindy teamed up after he left SoCal for the North East. I have never seen a finer guitarist and his songwriting abilities have only continued to get better and better. Unfortunately I only get to see them once a year when they come to Kerrville or Houston. Do not miss a chance if they come to your vicinity - you'll be sorry if you do !! One of the first song I ever learned to pick was Darcy Farrow after I saw him do it at Frankenstein's in Laguna Beach in 1959. Never came close to his rendition However !!!
