“With little effort Kevin just lets his guitar sing. His strings are attached to angel wings.” –Stephen Krempasky / Whitaker Center for Science & the Arts
Kevin Neidig has been described as a singer-songwriter and maestro of guitar, banjo, mandolin (“I love anything with strings”), influenced by Darrell Scott, Tim O’Brien, Sam Bush, Bela Fleck and Tony Rice. Rarely do you get in one musician the virtuosity of singer, instrumentalist and songwriter. Kevin brings all three with eloquent effortlessness. His performance credits include opening for Doc Watson, Peter Rowan, and Tom Paxton, and playing at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
“He…offers an amazingly diverse repertoire grounded in traditional Americana styles. His strong singing offers an added bonus to his excellent instrumental work.” –Jessica Hayden / Susquehanna Folk Music Society
