About Stephen Bennett

Whether playing his great-grandfather's harp guitar, his 1930 National Steel or a standard 6-string, Stephen Bennett is a musician to hear. His playing has won awards and critical praise. In live performance and on record, his diverse musical influences and interests are joined with a lifelong love affair with the sound of guitar strings.


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.
