Reed Stutz
Guitar

Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Reed Stutz is a Boston-based
multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin) and singer who plays
traditional American folk music. He is currently completing his
undergraduate degree at Berklee College of Music with concentrations on
American Roots Music and Guitar Performance. His education is supported
by the Fletcher Bright Scholarship, an award given by Berklee’s American
Roots Music Program, the Berklee Achievement Scholarship, and the Oregon
Bluegrass Association’s Steve Waller Grant. He is on track to graduate
in May of 2020.

Reed is musically rooted in traditional Old Time and Bluegrass music,
but sees beyond these boundaries for inspiration. While focused on and
respectful of tradition, he does not close doors based on labels. Reed
performs and teaches around the country at a variety of festivals,
workshops, and other music events. Some events he has recently performed
at include Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, Berklee’s American Roots
Program’s 10th Anniversary Showcase, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Green
Mountain Bluegrass and Roots Festival, Old Tone Roots Music Festival,
Freshgrass, and the 3 Sisters Bluegrass Festival.
