Performing at the McMillan Arts Centre – Friday, August 28th
“The renaissance man of acoustic guitar.”
Don Alder plays acoustic finger-style guitar with a passion that has quickly earned him a reputation as Vancouver's "best kept little secret". Don is a world-class finger-style guitarist with a "wow factor" that has led to multiple endorsement deals with major manufacturers and collaboration with Greenfield guitars to produce a signature acoustic guitar - the Don Alder G4" model.
Don currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. His unique style of playing incorporates finger picking with simultaneous percussion on the soundboard to create a wall of sound. He 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 finger-style playing and rich voice will be sure to captivate.
He plays with a passion and skill that caused Carly Rae Jepsen to describe him as “the MOST amazing guitarist... still shocked by (his) talent!”
