Default Teja Gerken plays "1948" at Gryphon House Concert

I haven't posted a video in a while, so here's a new clip of me playing my tune "1948" at a house concert I did with Doug Young and Mark Hanson at Gryphon in Palo Alto, California, a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy!

I figured there had to be a internal mic somewhere in the equation to get that “airy” sound, looking forward to hearing more

I really enjoyed this. And what a lineup on that stage!

Anything else from that show available on line?

Great song for me could you say something about "1948" and the background of the song. How it came about. Thanks!

Thanks for the nice comments. My dad was born in 1948, and I wrote this tune around the time of his 60th birthday.

Here's another tune from the same show. Francisco Tarrega's "Study in Em," but transposed to Bm, and played as a trio with Doug Young and Mark Hanson:

Teja,
these are both wonderful! What a group you've gathered there at Gryphon!
Thanks for sharing!
