About Your Teacher
Growing up along the Gulf Coast, Guthrie was influenced at an early age by all the Southern musicians around him. He started playing harmonica at age 7 and then guitar and mandolin at age 10. He played in bands throughout his teens, and at age 18 recorded in Nashville for Gove Scrivenor’s acclaimed album, Shine On. In 2001 Guthrie moved to Nashville to try to make it in the country music scene. He paid dues playing with the Don Kelley Band, and soon found himself playing sessions with great musicians including Willie Weeks, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Tim O'Brien, Randy Travis, Alison Krauss, Sam Bush, Tony Rice, Earl Scruggs and more. He was a member of Jerry Douglas’ band for 5 years, and before that worked closely with Patty Loveless - including on the Grammy winning album Mountain Soul II. As a recording artist Guthrie released his first solo album called Pick Peace in 2012 as a way to showcase his signature guitar playing which has been featured on so many other musicians’ projects. His versatile playing reflects his love for all kinds of music while staying true to his country roots.
