Guitarist Stephen Bennett, since his 1987 win at the National Flatpicking Championship, held in Winfield, Kansas, USA, has come to be known as a guitar master, one who consistently garners critical praise and audience enthusiasm for his recordings and live performances. He is the only person to ever win awards in both flatpicking and fingerpicking styles in the nearly 30-year history of the National Guitar Championships. 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. He 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 calls him “the Jedi Master of Fingerstyle Guitar”. As one of the world's few performers on the harp guitar, Stephen has created arrangements of classic tunes and composed new music as well. Armed with a standard six-string, an old National steel resonator guitar, his harp guitar, a broad repertoire, Stephen Bennett engages his audiences with an entertaining show of first-rate musicianship.
