In this episode, long-time local musicians Ginny Mitchell and Steve Palazzo sing country duets and talk about the local music scene in Santa Cruz. If they’re gifted, guided and lucky, they know it when they’re young and they pursue it as a career, as a life mission. Like Ginny Mitchell did. Today she’s among the premier all time women musicians and singers from that creative arts haven that is Santa Cruz, on California’s alluring Central Coast.
Steve Palazzo has been involved with music his entire life. A couple of decades ago he was making instruments. And since the early ’90s, he’s been a full-time guitar teacher. However, a lot of folks might know Palazzo for the bluegrass band Homefire, which was together for a quarter-century before calling it quits just a few years ago.
