Steve Kaufman is the only three-time winner of the National Flatpicking Championships, held each year in Winfield, Kansas. His music covers a broad range of styles including bluegrass favorites, popular swing standards, Irish and Appalachian fiddle tunes, folk and country classics and novelty tunes. Since 1976 Steve has been performing in a wide variety of settings, from elementary schools and colleges to major bluegrass festivals and concerts.
Steve is not only a sensational flatpicker but is also a dedicated instructor who maintains an extensive teaching and workshop practice. His many instructional videos and CDs are among Homespun's most popular lessons, and his annual "Steve Kaufman Acoustic Kamp" series have become a staple of the workshop circuit. Steve's ability to create tasteful and inventive arrangements in flatpick style has earned him a place as one of America's top guitarists.
