Two guitar craftsmen from different worlds of music create beautiful harmony in StringCraft. One, Jason Giger, is a traditional classical guitarist who was first inspired by the pure magical tone of a trumpeter…Miles Davis. The other, is Beau Tackett who's acoustic finger-stylings in StringCraft, when not on tour playing electric guitar with Blake Shelton, echo the influence of guitar greats ranging from Chet Atkins to Christopher Parkening.
The StringCraft Duo entertain & inspire with breathtaking acoustic finger-style guitar performance that must be heard and seen to be believed.
Jason was a great addition to our event! The music was a great finishing touch to our cocktail hour and added to it perfectly. I will definitely be working with him anytime we are in Nashville.
Response from StringCraft:
Thanks, Morgan, it was my pleasure...looking forward to working with you again!
