Tired of being stuck at home? If you can't get to a concert, let us bring a concert to you!
Internationally acclaimed guitarist, Don Alder, is our first performer in Concerts to Bridge the Distance and will be performing for a virtual west coast audience on April 4.
Don Alder plays with a passion rarely seen and is one of those acoustic guitar magicians with a signature style that leaves you wondering “How is he making that wall of sound.”
Ray Daniels, manager of Rush, says “Alder is one of those guitarists that should be famous around the world”. Guitar Player Magazine Senior Editor, Michael Molenda says “Alder, is a Guitar Star in the making and can hold an audience with the best of the seasoned pros”.
Alder is currently the only guitarist on the planet to have won all the top modern guitar competitions and his long list of accolades puts him alongside the top players in the acoustic genre. Alder has been featured in numerous guitar magazines, has millions of youtube views, performed duets with Grammy Winners Angelique Kidjo and John Parr and has been in shows and festivals that included artists such as Steve Vai, Lee Ritnour, David Foster, Victor Wooten, Sarah McLachlan, Andy Mckee, Tommy Emmanuel and Billy Sheehan (Mr.Big). It was at one of these shows that Lee Ritenour hand picked Alder to be on the advisory judge panel for the highly touted International Six String Theory Contest.
As we all do our part to beat Covid-19, millions of people are seeing their social interactions dramatically decreased. Millions are also seeing their incomes reduced. Most musicians and those in the 'gig' economy have seen their livelihoods come to a complete screeching halt.
With this series of concerts, we aim to do what we can to bring people together with a shared experience and at the same time put some much needed earnings in the pockets of musicians.
