Gordon – Spanish guitar


“House-sitting” in the winter mornings on the old schooner Stephen Taber I would sit on the companion ladder (where the first heat from the old woodstove would reach me) and watch the gulls soaring against the mountain. They’re great fliers. I made this tune for my friend Peter Platenius, who first enchanted me with music from his native Peru and Bolivia on the guitar.




Gulls in the Morning is recorded on the albums Clear Away in the Morning, North Winds Clearing, Peter Kagan and the Wind, and Other Eyes, and is in the songbook Time and the Flying Snow
