Gary Goldstein started playing guitar at 15 and he has been playing, writing and performing ever since. While in college he got to hear many of the prominent blues musicians of the day and took lessons from Reverend Gary Davis and Brownie McGhee. He attended Woodstock, and played in many bands over the years, most recently Fretbox Trio, who play blues-inflected pop-rock and have released three albums. He also performs solo, and recently completed a cross-country tour. More at fretboxtrio.com.
