Tev Stevig

Event Date: 
Tuesday, January 21, 2014 - 8:00pm

Tev Stevig explores the potential of playing the fretless nylon string guitar clawhammer style on his new recording Jeni Jol ("New Path" in Macedonian). Clawhammer, or frailing, is an old African technique typically associated with old time American folk banjo, but Stevig uses this uniquely American playing style on the fretless and fretted guitar to arrive at new arrangements of his favorite tunes from the Balkans, Greece, and Turkey, as well as his Balkan-inspired original material.

The new album 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. The New York Music Daily says, Stevig is "one of the world's most brilliantly individualistic guitarists…count this as one of the best albums in a year." In this special performance at Club Passim, Stevig will be joined by versatile percussionist Brian O'neill in further exploring the unique folk rhythm palette presented on Jeni Jol.
