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. Over time influences such as Muriel Anderson and Leo Kottke inspired Jason's crossover work into modern finger-figerstyle guitar. The other, is one of Nashville's most versatile guitarists, Beau Tackett. When Beau is not on tour playing electric guitar with Blake Shelton, his acoustic finger-stylings in StringCraft echo the influence of guitar greats ranging from Chet Atkins to Christopher Parkening.
Jason and Beau also count each other as a major influences since their friendship in music school at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. Jason graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Classical Guitar Performance in 2001 and Beau, a Bachelor of Music in Commercial Guitar Performance in 2002. Beau and Jason's musical friendship continues to motivate one another's playing today. The StringCraft Duo entertain & inspire with breathtaking acoustic finger-style guitar performance that must be heard and seen to be believed.
