February 20, 2006
When i was about 12, i was on a family holiday in portugal. It was late one evening, we’d just had a lovely meal in a restaurant and we were wandering through the town on the way back to our abode. While we were wandering, we found a german fellow with a massive moustache and an acoustic guitar, just playing beautiful soothing music to the passers-by. His music was so nice we bought one of his cd’s, got back to our place and put it straight on.
Since then, he’s become a beacon of classical acoustic guitar music for my family. We’ll remember him and share a joke, and often (probably more often than any other artist) sit and listen to his cd.
Point is, i found out this evening that this fellow had passed away, and i just wanted to mark the occasion. Outside of my family, i only know of one person who’s even heard of him, and that’s only because i lent him the cd. If you like mighty mellow, single acoustic guitar chillout tracks, give me a shout and you can have a listen. I want to spread the love.
Rest in peace Norbert Langensiepen.
