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.
I am uploading photos and descriptions of my summer project of building a tanbur under the tutelage of Feridun Ozgoren and Fred Stubbs on my tumblr page. Thus far, the process has been very interesting and super fun. I will be posting a more in depth description of the process soon on my Instruments page, so stay tuned!
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.
