On day 3 of the Barnstormer Tour, we are profiling Christopher Paul Stelling – and acoustic troubadour how has revived the art of music as storytelling and who possesses a rare level of mastery over his guitar.Over lush finger-picked melodies, Stelling weaves tales that combine folkloric, mythological, and religious imagery. It’s a style that today feels fresh, but is really what musicians have been doing for centuries.
Over the past decade, he has traveled around the country with his signature road worn, weathered guitar. His impassioned live shows, which run the gamut from delicate and fragile to impassioned and loud, have won him new fans at every stop.
Christopher Paul Stelling has played in all sorts of different places along the way, no venue is too large or too small. For him, however, first and foremost it’s about the music – if the mix isn’t right, he’ll unplug, walk into the crowd, and and continue under his own power. A truly dedicated musician, he’s something different in today’s music industry, but he reminds us of what the true essence of music is – sharing and connecting with others.
