Adam Steffey DVD – special offer from AcuTab

Adam Steffey mandolin DVD - free poster from AcuTab (photo by Dan Loftin)We had posted last month with news about AcuTab’s Adam Stefffey’s first-ever mandolin DVD. At the time we indicated that it would be available on June 12, but the release has been delayed until June 25.

To atone for the delay, AcuTab is offering a special offer for the first 300 orders, a free autographed Adam Steffey poster. This offer is only for direct orders through AcuTab, and they say that the posters will be shipped rolled in a tube to prevent damage in transit.

The new DVD is titled, Adam Steffey – My Approach To Bluegrass Mandolin, and includes 2 DVDs and a printed booklet. Between the two discs, the set runs for nearly four and half hours with instructional, tips and tunes from this 5 time winner of the IBMA Mandolin Player of the Year award.

The first DVD set offers purely instructional information, while the second has Adam teaching seven solos from his time as a member of Lonesome River Band, Alison Krauss & Union Station, and Mountain Heart.
