"Gilles Malkine (pronounced jeel malkeen) is a veteran of the legendary 1969 Woodstock Festival, in which he played rhythm guitar in Tim Hardin's band. He's performed hundreds of gigs in the ensuing years, some as a solo performer and many in concert with his partner in crime, Mikhail Horowitz, from their home turf of Woodstock, New York, to Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival. They were awarded the Sullivan Peace & Justice Award in 2005 for activism in the arts.

Gilles' songs range from poetic contemplation to delicious satire to stories about America's people and problems. He is an accomplished guitarist, and the subjects for his sets are wide and varied, always with ample humor and no room for fluff. He will lead you from caring to tears to laughter, and leave you hungry for more."

"Gilles' songs are touching, heartfelt, poetic – and sometimes direct and pointed - as he sings of hopes and dreams, and of ideas for a better world. He always writes with humor and kindness, about contemporary cares as well as stories from the past, and in his own way of saying the ancient things."

So – what can you expect from Gilles?

If what you need is ambient guitar playing, expect a wide selection of tunes including ragtime, jazz faves, Spanish, South American, and English music styles. Or, an evening of beautiful songs that carry a modicum of mind, sensitive music in which every note counts, and lots of good humor. And, if your audience wants to know, a little history about the Woodstock festival, what it was like to be there, play there, celebrate there!
