Gillette & Mangsen @ The Book Haven

  • The Book Haven 135 F Street Salida, CO, 81201 United States (map)

The Book Haven will present Steve Gillette and Cindy Mangsen in concert on Thursday, August 4th. 

A Gillette & Mangsen concert features compelling songs, rich harmony, and a good dose of humor.  Steve and Cindy have performed on National Public Radio, across North America and Europe, delighting audiences with traditional music and original songs.  Although they come from different musical backgrounds, “their voices and styles meld seamlessly with a gentleness and a maturity that is unmatched in the world of folk duos.” 

Mr. Gillette is a country/folk songwriter with Western roots.  Some of his best known songs,Darcy Farrow, Bed of Roses, and Back on the Street Again, have been covered by artists such as Ian & Sylvia, John Denver, Garth Brooks, Linda Ronstadt, and Tammy Wynette.
Ms. Mangsen is known for compelling interpretations of traditional Anglo-Scottish ballads, thoughtful songs, and a wonderful ear for harmony.  She is a keeper of old songs as well as a writer and interpreter of new ones.

The duo has recorded six albums in their 25-year collaboration, as well as solo albums and projects with other artists (Priscilla Herdman, Anne Hills, Michael Smith).  

Space is limited - RSVP is required. Please call 719-539-9629 to reserve your spot.
