Don Alder is at home on stages all over the world, and now bringing his guitar magic back to Europe once again for a solo concert tour in Germany, Switzerland and the UK. (Full tour schedule: see below)

Don Alder will perform songs from various albums, including new songs from his upcoming CD titled "Armed & Dangerous".
He will be performing all original material including fiery guitar instrumentals that will put you on the edge of your seat and his singing with a voice that will soothe your soul. One could describe his music as "fusion folk, blending pop and instrumental music" while others say "new world fusion with a hinge of bluegrass". Alder describes it as "honest music from the heart".

His music is a unique combination 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 captivate. Don is also recognized as one of the of the world's top harp guitarists, and besides his Yamaha guitar and his baritone guitar he'll bring along his harp guitar for sure.

Don Alder, often referred to as the "Hendrix" of Acoustic Guitar is a Multi-Award Winning Acoustic guitarist from Canada. Hot off his recent performance with Chris Hadfield, Commander of the Intl' Space Station, Alder continues to "Wow" audiences around the world with his "jaw dropping" one man band act. His singing is soulful and heartfelt and his story telling and guitar playing is highly entertaining.

Alder's other recent activities include performing at the 2014 All Star Guitar Night, promo video shoot with the Ernie Ball String company, hand selected by Lee Ritenour to the judge advisory panel for the global Six String Theory competition, writing guitar columns for the online UK based Guitar Interactive Magazine.
