My Guitar Gently Weeps

Join us for an unforgettable evening with Canadian guitar virtuoso Don Alder!

Don Alder plays acoustic fingerstyle guitar with a passion and exuberance that has quickly earned him a reputation as Vancouver’s “best kept little secret”. Don is a world-class fingerstyle guitarist with a “wow factor” that has led to winning all the top modern guitar competitions in the world, including the 2011 World Wide Guitar Idol competition. He has multiple endorsement deals with major guitar manufacturers, and a collaboration with Greenfield guitars to produce a signature acoustic guitar – the eponymous “Don Alder G4″ model.

Spending his early childhood in Montreal, Don grew up and currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. His unique style of playing incorporates fingerpicking with simultaneous percussion on the soundboard to create a wall of sound. He has been called the “acoustic Jimi Hendrix” and is often referred to as sounding like a four piece band. Don’s music is his own unique weave of deeply textured melody and story. Lyrical and compelling, his original songs are notes of exploration – some passionate and haunting, some hard-driven, others light and teasing. In quiet pieces or pushing right to the edge, Don’s phenomenal fingerstyle playing and rich voice has captivated audiences through North America, Europe and Asia.
