Read a recent interview with Zeb Snyder -
Now 18, Zeb started playing guitar at 7 years old. He took to it fast, as most prodigious students do, and by the time he was 10 he was already playing various gigs around the southeast. At 11 (2007) he won the top prize, a Wayne Henderson acoustic guitar, at the Jimmy Edmonds Homecoming Competition in Galax,VA. In 2011 he was voted the guitar champion at Renofest in Hartsville, South Carolina and at the Old Fiddlers Convention in Galax, VA. He's been featured in several articles and magazines, including the 2012 March/April issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, and even in a documentary entitled Generation Bluegrass about young bluegrass players emerging on the scene. Last year, he made the album with Adam Steffey and got to the second round for the IBMA Guitar Player of the Year. And all the while.... he's been playing and developing on the mandolin!
