Today is the birhtday of Andres Segovia...The man who brought the guitar from being a parlor instrument to being a serious concert instrument. His contribution to the popularity and repertoire of the guitar is undeniable. Please take the time to enjoy the maestro...

Well done. Very good call.


Happy Birthday.


I was fortunate enough to actually see the Maestro himself on one of his very last 'farewell' tours - I think it probably was his last visit to England.

BBC theatre in Regent St London. Early 80s perhaps?

By that time he had lost a lot, but when the cogs all meshed in sync so to speak (as they did on a few occasions during his recital) it was fxxxin' amazing.


You cannot gainsay or underestimate what this guy did.

And the fact that he was Spanish, a King.
