I recently did a shoot for Wilma Magazine, for a piece written by Alison Lee Satake. The article is about Connie Nelson and her partner, William “Paco” Strickland, one of Wilmington’s noted and popular musicians. It relates her daily devotion to Paco, not as just his partner and best friend, but also as his care giver in his battle with cancer. I was honored to meet them and glad to be able to do the shoot. This all took place one Friday evening at Mixto, 5 South Water Street, down on the riverfront. You can listen to Paco and his flamenco guitar there on Friday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30. If you haven’t seen this man work his magic on a guitar, then you should do something nice for yourself and visit Mixto on Fridays. Take your friends. Its a nice place to hang out, eat some good food and enjoy a very talented man. In the mean time pick up a copy of Wilma at one of the numerous locations in the Port City and read the story. Its a good one.
