Andreas Vollenweider?


I recall seeing Andreas at a theater with the best acoustics I have ever heard. We were seated center mezzanine; it was like being in the center of a huge speaker.
The performance Andreas and his aggregation put on was so mesmerizing; each musician played several different instruments. Andreas played two kinds of harps and a koto. The percussionist had such a vast array of bells gongs and "tinkly" sounding things he could hardly be seen. That evening went far too fast.

Is he still around, I wonder? Or is he behind the gardens under the tree?
Always liked his music.
Saw him 2 years ago on a rare US tour. I think that's the problem, he can't fill large places anymore and any tour in the US becomes very costly.

If he comes back I would see him in a heartbeat and bring the kids this time. Great show, very entertaining and accessible music even if you're not familiar with it.
Saw him in San Diego at SDSU open air pavillion.
Best of New Age IMO (Michael Hedges at Ravinia not far behind).
I saw him live at the Greek in Berkeley, and it was unforgettable, and I have since seen no better concert. Jallen
