first came into contact with Flamenco music when I had my first shop, Fretted
Instruments, in New York City (1963-67). Located in Greenwich Village I was exposed
to many varied musical styles and Flamenco was one of my favorites. The first
group I watched was composed of David El Rubio Jones, Freddie Mejia,
and David (Jose) Rubio. I am still friends with all three of these musicians,
and David Rubio is now a luthier known all over the world. I also worked with
Eugene Clark at that time and this has had the most profound effect on my outlook.
I am also still friends with Eugene.
So I have
spent many years around great players and singers and dancers and guitar-makers
in this tradition, and my Marc Silber Flamenco guitars embody what I have learned.
