International Bluesbeat: Spain Terry Clear) "...the highlight of the night was the appearance of Stan Hirsch, Albuquerque, NM -USA -based guitarist. 'Stan the Man', as the locals had quickly christened him, thrilled the crowd, and especially the other musicians, with half a dozen solo acoustic classics. If this is the shape of things to come, then local fans are in for a good winter."
