Flyer for the coolwater ranch house concert featuring Transatlantic guitar trio

The Transatlantic Guitar Trio is made up of three of the most amazing pickers ever put on the planet. Coolwater’s friend and monster player Richard Smith joins forces with German Gypsy Jazz player Joscho Stephan and multi instrumentalist Rory Hoffman.

Richard Smith’s credentials are the stuff of legends. Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Merle Travis, Django Reinhardt are all people Richard has studied, learned from and added to his many mastered techniques.

Joscho Stephan was born in Germany in 1979. His roots lie in Gipsy Swing music, the style pioneered in the 1930s by the legendary jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. Joscho Stephan has not merely absorbed this music, but also interprets it on the highest level and is actively engaged in extending its boundaries. Despite his youth, after four highly acclaimed CDs and a DVD he has played his way into the illustrous circle of the finest Gipsy Swing musicians in the world.

Rory Hoffman is a Nashville based multi-instrumentalist. Raised on a small ranch in North Dakota, Rory grew up recording and touring with the family Gospel band. He started teaching himself to play guitar and piano at age 3. By age 5 he was the drummer in the family band. He currently plays over a dozen stringed, keyboard and wind instruments.
