This is Marc S. Silber in Berkeley, California.
Will Scarlett is on a few of my CDs, and has played some outstanding and original Harmonica.
My favorite is a song I made up myself called "BLUES CAME DOWN LIKE A MIDNIGHT SHOWER OF RAIN".
I have played this song many times with Will over a thirty year period, but the night we recorded it Live at Strings well, he was just special. He rather ranged from Jug Band/Blues to sort of Ornette Coleman including the exotic intonations, AND ALL ON THE SAME TUNE!
You can hear me, Marc S. Silber, sing and play a few songs on my website www.marcsilbermusic.com
My 5 CDs are also available on my website.
I also still deal in older banjos, guitars, and mandolins (musical instruments) as I have since 1963.
PEACE, MARC S.SILBER

: I see Will play occasionally at the Freight
: and Salvage and other venues around Berkeley
: (CA). He hangs around with guitarist/luthier
: Marc Silber, whom I know, and has also
: played with Steve Mann now and then (with
: Marc, also). On one special occasion I saw
: him get up and play with Rory Block at the
: Freight. She didn't know who he was but took
: the advice of Maria Muldaur and Marc (whom
: she was telling Greenwich Village stories
: about all night) who were sitting, just in
: front of me, in the first row. She was
: visably blown away by Will's chromatic harp
: playing and did several songs with him.
: Unfortunately I don't know if he has
: appeared on any other albums.
: More sad news about Steve Mann. I was
: recently talking to Marc and he told me that
: Steve has had further neurological surgery.
: He also said his recovery was slow and that
: he was yet another step away from the Steve
: Mann of the '60s.
: All for now.

: position. I've never heard a harp player
: like him. He's also a longtime friend of
: Steve Mann. Does anyone know if he issued
: other albums. If so, any suggestins as to
: where to dind them? e-Bay is a bust on this,
