What an incredible weekend!
Thank you to Richard Smith, Jesse Cobb, and JK Gulley for putting on such a wonderful show on Saturday evening.
Also, thank you to Misty Mountain Coffee for allowing us to use their great space!
And of course, a big thank you goes out to everyone who came out and enjoyed the show. We look forward to seeing you all at our future acoustic events.
I’m absolutely in love with my Stonebridge guitar! Best guitar I ever purchased!
I just thought i send you some promo material of the titled track off my up-coming album “Golden”.
I hope you enjoy!
Thanks for everything!
It’s hard to contain our excitement about this killer new dreadnought!
Introducing the D35SR, our newly designed flagship Dreadnought. Not only is it a beauty to behold, it is difficult to find the right words to adequately describe how amazing this guitar truly is. It features an AAAA grade Adirondack Spruce top and bracing, with back and sides of premium Indian Rosewood. With added appointments such as the Koa binding, the Macassar Ebony headstock overlay, abalone inlays and more, the appearance is nothing less than stunning.
The D35SR is a powerhouse of sound, delivering outstanding volume, clarity, definition and sweetness of tone. We are confident that serious and discerning players will agree with us, that this instruments sits confidently in the top echelon of present day, boutique dreadnoughts. The great news is that it costs far less than anything comparable. Try one out as soon as you can, and prepared to be spellbound!
Dylan Ryche, from Toronto, Canada, is an emerging Fingerstyle guitarist to watch. He has an incredible amount of skill, which he superbly balances with equal sense of musical beauty and taste. Dylan won first place at this past summer’s Canadian Fingerstyle Competition. He is presently busy writing new material for his next CD, on which he plans to use his new OM32-A extensively.
We are delighted to announce that Nashville guitarist, Jon Conley, has recently joined our ranks as an endorsement artist. Presently hired by none other than Kenny Chesney, as the principle guitar player in his band, Jon has a long list of very notable accomplishments. He is now using a D22SR-A as his main guitar, for performing live and recording. The video below features Jon Conley with his new Stonebridge guitar, while he shares some sincere thoughts about it before a stage rehearsal during the Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw’s summer tour.
Here is Dave playing on his new 12 string dreadnought!
Canadian Guitar Festival Champion 2012
“I am very happy and proud to have won the Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar competition this past summer – some seriously good players have won this in previous years! Also, I got to meet some really great and talented people. I love the festival and got to catch up with some old friends and hear some amazing musicians there. The crowd has such a love for music and the guitar that it is simply a joy to be around these people. Thanks to my wife and son for all the incredible love and support you’ve given me over the years. Having them both with me made the whole experience even more special. My thanks also to Del for putting on such a great event each year, Roger at Stonebridge Guitars for an awesome guitar and to everyone who enjoyed the show.” – Dylan Ryche
Nick Hoffman plays at the Grand Ole Opry with his band called “The Farm”
Three musicians and a songwriting friend were toying with a fiddle riff, just to see where it might lead. It became the hook for a song, and once they launched into the “Home Sweet Home” chorus, the three voices fell into place with an unexpected, other-worldly sound. Instant harmony. Almost-instant band.
THE FARM is in many ways a hybrid act – a trio deeply rooted in Country Music, that folds in sonic elements from a variety of popular-music genres – but the core is built around a solid, identifiable vocal harmony.
Interlocking voices have been an important thread in country’s history, from the Sons of the Pioneers through Alabama through Restless Heart through Lady Antebellum. THE FARM – Nick Hoffman, Damien Horne and Krista Marie – puts its own distinct spin on the sound, a tightly woven mesh that relies on the synthesis of three musicians who found their way to Nashville from different parts of the U.S. with different sets of musical influences. THE FARM’s unified blend is an aural representation of the melting-pot mentality at the heart of America.
“There are a lot of bands out there that you could take a member out and not know the difference,” Nick, the fiddle-playing singer, notes. “This is not one of those bands.”
“It’s really three elements that you bring together,” Krista adds. “Like earth, wind, fire – and there we are.”
