Hope some of y’all who remember Klaus can make it to Fair Grinds on Friday. And, if you weren’t around back in the day, come support live folk music and get an earful of some of the finest playing you’ll ever hear! An Evening with Guitar Wizard Klaus Weiland.
Friday Night December 30, 2001
Fair Grinds Coffee House
3133 Ponce de Leon St. New Orleans
Habituees of the Quarter and New Orleans coffeehouses may remember the flamboyantly attired German musician with the English accent who killed us softly with his acoustic guitar in the late 70s and early 80s. Whether jamming with Charmaine or Little Queenie, with New Leviathan’s Eric Glaser or just hanging out with a mandolin, Klaus always brought fluency and craft to his playing.
His cds include: Pebbles, Acoustic Passion, Listen to the Sky, and Cathedral Forests. An EP, Lotte, is available on iTunes.
