I just wanted to mention that Stephen realized a lifelong dream last year when his "Powhatan Suite" was recorded by the Brandenburg State Orchestra. This began as a Kickstarter project to which I gladly contributed. The recording features the orchestral versions as well as the solo guitar versions. I'm listening to it now and loving it all over again.

I also saw Stephen about 5 or 6 years ago at the annual Christmas concert at the Opera House in Woodstock, IL. Sadly, these Christmas concerts are no more. When I found out he was coming to my neck of the woods, I contacted Stephen and arranged for a private lesson on harp guitar prior to the concert. I learned more in that hour than I would have learned in months of trying to do things on my own.
