Music by: Tim Tompkins
Frances and I were preparing to play stage music for a local college production of Ted Hughes’s version of Frederico Garcia Lorca’s play Blood Wedding. The producer, Marilyn Abad Cardinalli, asked me, “Can you play flamenco?” “No,” I replied. “Can you play something like flamenco?” “I’ll work on it.” And I did; day after day I nibbled lunch out behind the old Anafaze (industrial temperature controllers) building in Watsonville while playing the well-worn Yamaha classical guitar that Justin Hayward gave me in 1975, London. The composition took on a life of its own, and to this day it is one my favorite little guitar pieces to play. [Tim]
