Classical guitarist Christopher Parkening was born on December 14 (yesterday). I missed it. You can go to his website for more information about his life, his career, his recordings and concerts and his Christian testimony. Here’s a teaser to spark your interest. Parkening says:
For over a quarter century, I have been known in the classical music world as a concert guitarist, following the tradition of the great Spanish guitarist Andres Segovia. However, there was a time in my life when I stopped concertizing and recording, and even gave up practicing the instrument. Apart from a small amount of teaching at Montana State University, I quit the guitar completely. This is the story of why I decided to perform once again.
His music is excellent. I recommend it highly.
