Chris Stephens, World Musician, Virtuoso performer of Indian Sitar, Arabic Oud,
Persian Tar, Turkish Saz, and Chinese Pipa. Chris Stephens brings the world together with historic stringed instruments. His specialty is in the family of instruments known as “lutes”, which are the historic ancestors of the guitar, and their traditional music systems along the historic overland silk road nations. The main focus is to introduce these hidden art forms to the audience and to engage familiar listeners by honoring the old playing styles and using the improvised nature of the music to create a new style that blends each unique regional style together.
