Draa Hobbs and John Stowell Duo

Guitarists John Stowell and Draa Hobbs return to Artistree for an afternoon of jazz improvisations!


The duo will explore a wide variety of material ranging from jazz standards and famous compositions by Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, to seldom-heard songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Stowell and Hobbs have been performing concerts together as a duo for more than a decade.


There will be a Guitar Workshop prior to the concert for guitarists and anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of jazz improvisation. The workshop will run for approximately 90 minutes beginning at 12:00 pm.

An internationally known and respected jazz artist with a startlingly original style, John Stowell has been praised for his exceptional artistry:

“Guitarist John Stowell’s style with standards is a delightful departure from the road well-traveled. He transcends the label of jazz guitarist.”- Los Angeles Times........"Stowell made his electric guitar sing beautifully, displaying all the virtuosity that has brought him to the jazz world's attention in recent years."Coda Magazine, Toronto......“He plays his amplified guitar as if he were surrounded by fine crystal... the type of slow-burning, sustained energy that you hear in players that practice all the time.” - Downbeat

Guitarist Draa Hobbs has enjoyed a busy schedule of club dates and concerts throughout New England. He has performed in Paris and, in 2019, Germany. He teaches guitar and guitar workshops both online and at his home in Grafton, VT.
