    WAM Dec8-9 Gordon Quinton

    If you see Gordon Quinton sitting in a coffee shop seeming to stare into space, chances are he has a lot on his mind..... musically speaking, Quinton is likely composing a tune. Sometimes it comes when he is strolling, contemplating nature's magnificence. Or from the gentle purr of his cat, Quito. These influences and more have found their way into the tunes on Quinton's brand new CD. A Guitar's Story is Gordon's story too. The story of the man and his music are inseparable. Gordon Quinton stopped by to talked with me about his love affair with the guitar, how it began and his latest labour of love.
