Thread Name: Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen-2008 tour
Subject: RE: Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen-2008 tour
The only negative thing I see on this thread about Steve & Cindy is that Cleveland doesn't appear on the list, dagnabbit.

These are the kind of people who embody for me, all the the best aspects folk music.

Cindy's voice and way of phrasing a song sounds as seamless as if she were talking to you, her sound is beautiful while never getting in the way of a song. They're both such grand musicians. I've known of Cindy longer than Steve, and always loved her blend of the very old songs and choice newer compositions. Steve's gentle strength in his writing is a joy.

It's difficult to think of these folks aside from their music, so I'd say above and beyond the music, they're just wonderful human beings. I've enjoyed every second of their company the many times and several locations I've been lucky enough to share. If you've never seen them perform, go. Just go. Your soul will be enriched.
