Clawhammer Guitarist, Tev Stevig CD Release

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 26, 2013 - 8:00pm
Venue: 

For Boston-based musician Tev Stevig, an epiphany occurred when he first heard the fretless guitar. For years, Stevig had explored American music from old time folk music to jazz, as well as the sounds of the Balkans and the Middle East. He wanted to bring together all of his musical passions and with this instrument he saw a path to realize his intentions.

Today, Stevig introduces his album entitled Jeni Jol  (“the New Path”) to the world, the first in a new series of recordings featuring clawhammer guitar, and it demonstrates his unique approach in brilliant fashion.  Jeni Jol is not only a showcase of Stevig’s formidable talent, it is also a disc that breaks new ground in making connections between such disparate musical cultures.

So for now, Jeni Jol’s recordings are just Tev Stevig and his various guitars, completely unadorned. That makes for the perfect introduction to Stevig’s novel approach. It is introspective at times, roaring with life at others, but it is always mesmerizing. With Jeni Jol, Tev Stevig is taking us all down a new musical path.
