Santa Cruz, Calif. — Organizers of a Mandolin Symposium announced today that mandolin legend Adam Steffey will joint the 2007 staff as an instructor.

Adam Steffey, arguably the most influential mandolin player of the past decade, was an original member of Mountain Heart.

A veteran of Alison Krauss & Union Station, with whom he reached unparalleled heights of success, earning multiple Grammys, Country Music Association and IBMA awards and frequent appearances on national television, he helped to create Mountain Heart in 1999, and then went on to further acclaim as a member of the award-winning gospel group, The Isaacs.

Known far beyond bluegrass, Steffey was drafted to appear with the Dixie Chicks on their performance at the 2001 CMA awards show and Grammy winning recording "Home".
