It’s heartwarming to hear Washbrook holding the flame in regards to the great guitarist Lenny Breau. Washbrook obviously finds inspiration from Lenny while developing his own inner voice and vision. You can hear his passion, heart and soud on his CD ‘A Gypsy’s Bed’.

This is very heart-felt tribute tot he great guitarist, Lenny Breau. Rick plays the music with great love and respect.

When I listen to Rick Washbrook play it makes me feel very close to my brother and it makes me realize that Lenny will always live on. Thank you Rick for keeping Lenny’s music so vital and alive.
