THE GUEST: Kevin Mansfield is living proof that everybody can learn guitar.  At the age of 48 he purchased his first guitar and within 6 months was performing at open mics.  Kevin combines the fun loving spirit of Jimmy Buffet, with 3 chord honesty of John Prine, and a dash of Warren Zevon's alcohol fueled sarcasm.  His songs are simple, but his messages are clear: laugh, enjoy and be thankful. Kevin has performed on the streets of New York and at open mics from coast to coast.  

During the daytime he gathers song material from his career as an industrial real estate investor.   As Kevin has said about his songwriting        "I feel I'm in my infancy, moving from that stage where the baby spits up on himself, to the next stage, where folks say 'hey, can you shut that thing up?"
