Album Notes
An unprecedented project in every way, featuring all new recordings that include new inspirational pieces written expressly for Stephen, cover versions of favorite Bennett tunes and special dedicated selections – with a grand finale featuring nearly sixty SB fans playing (mostly harp guitars) along with one of Stephen’s original recordings from 1999.

With an Introduction by Gregg Miner, Preface by John Thomas, and Foreword by Andy McKee.

"Why does Stephen Bennett’s music have such universal appeal?

"As all 65 participants say in one form or another, this is not just any music and Stephen is not just some enigmatic artist. All who hear him agree that he is much more than a consistently prolific composer and talented guitarist. His music touches us profoundly.

"For over 25 years, Stephen has influenced hundreds of guitarists and inspired many of those to make the leap into harp guitar. In fact, it would be fair to say that there might be no harp guitar movement today, if not for Stephen. After all, it was his idea to hold something he called The Harp Guitar Gathering, “just to see who might show up.” He thought it would be nice to meet each other and share our love of this instrument. 

"As more than one fan has said, 'As great a musician and composer as Stephen is, he's an even better human being.' And so we celebrate the man: a true inspiration, an outstanding talent, a wonderful person and a great friend."

– Gregg Miner, Harp Guitar Music founder and Stephen Bennett fan
