Recipient of the Sally Irvine Ordway Award for Commitment, recognizing lifetime achievement, contribution and leadership in the arts and/or culture, Steven J. Schmidt has written over 200 songs and each one is like a bottle of fine, bourbon barrel-aged stout. He performs his rich, full-flavored original tunes, crafted over the last forty years, at house concerts, coffee houses, brew pubs, wineries, and festivals. A highly skilled guitarist some refer to as “a folkie with chops,” Steve is noted for his fingerpicking, novel chord voicings, use of alternate tunings, and playing up-the-neck.
