Southern California March 23-24

March 14th, 2018

It was great to play with my friend Lulo Reinhardt again in Florida last week. And great to meet a new friend Marek Pieseczny, a great guitarist/composer originally from Poland. I’m headed for a show at Boulevard Music in Los Angeles on March 23rd and one at the Museum Of Making Music in Carlsbad on the 24th. Looking forward to seeing my son Will for a few days too! If you’re in the vicinity of either of those shows, I’d love to see you there!

Ciao,

2018

January 4th, 2018

I hope your year is starting off well. As for me, I’m settling into a couple of months of composing and experimenting. I have more shows scheduled this year than in a while. I’ll play in Florida, California, Virginia, Connecticut, Kansas, and briefly in Pennsylvania, as well as a couple of shows in Toronto. I’ll teach at Andy McKee’s camp in California and Pete Huttlinger’s camp in Montana this summer. And I’ll be hosting the 16th Annual Harp Guitar Gathering in October. Tangier Morning, my first recording was released in 1988, 30 years ago, and I’ll be remixing, remastering and re-releasing that this year. Odds are good I’ll put out another cd of new music as well. Maybe two. Wishing you and yours a very good year.

Fifty Years, and Counting… coming in early December!

November 9th, 2017

Here’s my friend Susan Burgoyne’s painting called Same Face, New Attitude that will be the cover of my latest recording. The cd is called Fifty Years, and Counting… That’s how long I’ve been playing the guitar. (I know, I know – I should be much better than I actually am!). It’s full of fun cover tunes and finishes up with one new composition of my own – it’s a veritable potpourri, folks! The project has left my hands and is on its way to the manufacturing facility. I’ll have copies early in December.

The 15th Annual Harp Guitar Gathering

October 17th, 2017

Nancy and I just finished up with the 15th Harp Guitar Gathering and are now hanging out in Temecula, CA with my son Will for a few days. The Gathering is a magical event and this year was no exception. Even maybe, the best ever!

I’m looking forward to playing a couple of shows in Canada next month, in Quebec and Shawinigans.

And my 31st recording is out of my hands and awaiting some mixing magic by my friend Kim Person, engineer extraordinaire. All solo acoustic guitar, it’ll be called 50 Years, and Counting… because that’s how long I’ve been playing now.

Best to you and yours,
Stephen
