ROWLESBURG — Rowlesburg musician Charles Langford is a romantic, according to his wife, Dottie.

She said every year for their anniversary Langford writes a song and plays and sings it just for her. Langford recently performed at the Kingwood Arts and Musical Festival.

“This is my first time before an audience since 1992,” he said. “I have videos on YouTube, so I thought I would give it a shot.”

Langford has been playing the guitar since 1964. “I started playing when I was 4 years old. I don't know what inspired me,” he said. “I just knew I wanted to play.”
