Stephen Bennett, harp guitar and a variety of 6-string guitars Stephen Bennett is an extraordinary musician, an acknowledged master of the harp guitar, a challenging teacher, a gifted composer, and a performer of astounding sensitivity. The Toronto Fingerstyle Guitar Association referred to him as “the Jedi Master of Fingerstyle Guitar”… Stephen has traveled the world and performed with the best. From California to Maine, Texas to Tennessee, as well as around Europe, Canada, Australia and Japan, Stephen has played all sorts of venues and events. He has released 24 recordings of music, along with DVDs, books and other instructional materials – and he’s always working on something new! None other than Tommy Emmanuel, arguably the most well-known solo guitarist in the world today, includes one of Stephen’s recordings (Ten) in his list of 10 Essential Acoustic Guitar Albums. The testimony of those who hear Stephen is that his work is the product of both mind and heart, intellectually challenging and emotionally satisfying – – and it is deeply personal, even as it is universal. Listeners have a feeling that they have stepped into the world of the musician, and for a short moment in time, there are only the two of them there. Says one reviewer: “With his ear near the body of the harp guitar, Mr. Bennett gave the impression of a father cradling a newborn baby . . . His performance was imbued with heart and grace.”


“Bennett engages his audiences with an entertaining show of first-rate musicianship.”
