Inspirational Song of the Week: Monday – Sunday, April 17 – 23, 2017

“Harpstrings” from “Shepherd”

Instrumental performed by Bobby Stanton
Arrangement by Bobby Stanton and Peter Link
Produced by Peter Link

Bobby Stanton is a world class guitarist whose career spans many styles of music. With Watchfire Music he has created one of our most popular Inspirational CDs.

You may have heard him featured on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion or playing in one of several Broadway musicals. You may have also caught his magical fingers strumming with the likes of Mark O’Connor, James Taylor, Richie Havens, Noel Redding, Bo Diddley, Susan Tedeschi, Maureen Mcgovern, Donny Osmond, The Platters, Fabian, Charlie Daniels, only to name a few. In his spare time (what spare time could he possibly have?) he shares his talent and technique as a teacher of guitar at Berklee College of Music in Boston where he was awarded the first ever “Ovation” Award.

“I just finished listening to the Shepherd CD by Bobby Stanton. Totally inspiring! Different! Spiritually uplifting! Beautiful orchestrations! Superb sound! What more can I say – I love all the arrangements!” – Marion Miller

“Bob Stanton shows you how the arpeggios of these uncomplicated structures can be “summed” together with each other to create more complex melodic effects, including altered sounds. It’s a great addition to your playing” -Guitar Player Magazine
