Keith Calmes – Nostaligic Waltz

December 6th, 2014
Friends and Family, 
Here’s a link to a new video of Nostalgic Waltz by leading Czech guitarist and composer Stepan Rak.
Nostalgic Waltz is a lovely movement from Rak’s Journey to Fairy Tales, which consists of 30 movements (so far!).
My great student and audio engineer Ryan Johnson recorded all 30 movements recently and will be releasing these online shortly via Acoustic Library.
 –
The guitar is by Kris Barnett in Atlanta.
 –
We hope that you enjoy this beautiful music!

Oh, and since it’s the holiday season, here’s a link to my new holiday CD (recorded with Mark Farley!):
Have a peace-filled holiday!
