Tev Stevig is a Boston-based guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, specializing in a variety of plucked string instruments from the Balkans, Greece, and Turkey. Currently Tev performs with his solo/duo project called Jeni Jol, for which he incorporates elements of music from the Balkans, Greece, and Turkey in his original compositions and arrangements for clawhammer style fretless guitar. This style (also known as frailing) is closely associated with old time American folk music played on the banjo and has its roots in Africa. By bringing frailing to the fretless guitar and applying it to various music traditions from around the world, Tev hopes to create a new folk music that is both listenable and danceable. Tev's recent release, Jeni Jol: Music of the Balkans, Greece, and Turkey has garnered universal praise from critics and is one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine's best albums of 2013.
