The Romeros wrap up First Thursdays

Celino & Lito Romero.

The Cultural Arts Committee of the Del Mar Foundation presented the final in its series of First Thursdays for 2003-2004 with a local flair. It was a magical evening last Thursday night when world-renowned Del Mar guitarists and cousins Celino and Lito Romero performed at a packed Powerhouse. Playing traditional favorites written by their grandfather, Celedonio Romero, as well as ones arranged by themselves, the duo took numerous standing ovations to an appreciative crowd.
