Prof. Walter Clark’s latest book is Los Romeros: Royal Family of the Spanish Guitar. It has been published by University of Illinois Press in its Music in American Life series. Available in hardcover, paperback, and digital formats, it features forewords by, among others, the late Sir Neville Marriner, who said of this famous family of guitarists, “For the protraction of my musical education and the great pleasure of their company, I am truly grateful to the family Romero.”
