Ronnie Gilbert, beloved local musical icon and writer from the Weavers’ heyday, lives in Mendocino. Antonia Lamb, astrologer to the stars and everybody else in the know, and great, great singer-songwriter who was that when it wasn’t called that, lives in Mendocino. Meridian Green, daughter of Folk founding father Bob Gibson, and whose own bell-like voice has been heard here for decades, lives in Mendocino. The Blushin Roulettes live in Mendocino. Gweneth and Monko and Morgan all live in Mendocino. What is the magnet here for so many musicians to take up residence. Must be the groovy vibe. You can read all about Folk Music in Mendocino this week in Real Estate Magazine, which Studio Z Mendocino now publishes. Pick up a copy all over the county, or go to our website to get the whole lowdown: www.realestatemendocino.com. The photos are very cool.
Love this sexy one of the young Antonia with Bob Gibson and Biff Rose in 1971:
