Jeff Stanley can't help but have a global repertoire. The Ashland guitarist was born in Ohio, raised in Tanzania, attended school in Los Angeles and lived in Sydney, Australia, all before moving to Ashland in 2011.
His bluesy roots music contains elements of reggae, jazz, funk and hip-hop.
In addition to being a member of Ashland funk band LOVEBITE and country-rock band The Stamps, Stanley performs solo and with his trio, featuring bassist Jacob Ackerman and drummer Mathew Kreimelman.
Stanley will present instrumentals and Tommy Emmanuel-inspired ballads at 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17, at Paddy Brannan's Irish Pub, 23 S. Second St., Ashland.
