Stefan Grossman

Stefan Grossman joins host Craig Thatcher at PBS39 for an intimate conversation and blues/folk music performance.

Stefan is an American acoustic fingerstyle guitarist and singer, music producer and educator, and co-founder of Kicking Mule records. He is also known for his instructional videos and Vestapol line of videos and DVDs.

He took guitar lessons for several years from Rev. Gary Davis, whom he later described as “one of the greatest exponents of fingerstyle blues and gospel guitar playing” and “an incredible genius as a teacher“.He spent countless hours learning and documenting Davis’s music, recording much of it on a tape recorder, and developing a form of tablature to take down his teacher’s instructions.
