Tev Stevig is a Boston-based guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, specializing in a variety of plucked string instruments. His current primary project is called Jeni Jol, which is dedicated to his arrangements of music from the Balkans, Greece, and Turkey for clawhammer guitar.
"Cherambe," track 1 on Jeni Jol: Music of the Balkans, Greece, and Turkey, was featured on PRI's "The World" on December 17th. This is the second time music from the new album has been featured on "The World," and the first time one of my original tunes was featured on the show.
Cuperlika, a track from Jeni Jol was recently featured on Public Radio International's syndicated news program, "The World." My playing was also heard in this same program on a track from Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica's new album. Check it out here!
Once or twice a week, I will highlight a different musician or group that is currently inspiring me in a feature I am calling "...For the Music Enthusiast." My first few posts included Derek Gripper and Raya Brass Band. Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr to get access to these posts.
