There were surprises at every turn of the first Fretboard Summit, but one of the biggest was hearing Courtney Hartman of Della Mae perform her solo set. We knew she was a fine picker but where did all these gorgeous original tunes come from? Without question, she has a long and incredible career in front of her, as both a band member and a solo artist.
Though Hartman performed the majority of her set on her trusty Bourgeois dreadnought, on “Matter of Time” she brought out her open-back Morgan Monroe Cameron banjo and revealed yet another facet to her stellar playing. We can’t wait to hear more from this rising star.
