Four of the world's finest acoustic guitarists from Canada, the US and the UK take to our stage...
Don Alder is a modern-day Acoustic Guitar Renaissance Man. He's won the International Fingerstyle Competition; Guitar Player Magazine's Guitar Superstar Champion 2010; and, recently, the 2011 Guitar Idol competition. Don's phenomenal fingerstyle playing and rich voice captivate and he brings an unparalleled dynamic intensity to the stage.
Dan LaVoie is one of the few musicians in the world actively composing and performing on the rare harp guitar, bringing a unique sound and texture to fans of acoustic music. In 2010, Dan released his highly anticipated second CD entitled "Cause and Effect" featuring duets with Andy Mckee and Michael Manring.
Justin King is a musician and artist from Eugene, Oregon, recognised as a pioneering guitarist for his percussive "tapping" playing style, consisting of a variety of influences ranging from Flamenco to Celtic music. His latest record is a solo effort and features King on a broad range of instruments, including cello, drums, keyboard, bass, and guitar.
Stuart Masters combines Western and Indian Classical, Folk, and Celtic influences to create a unique, hybrid style, with pure, haunting vocals. His self-produced debut album came out in 2010, and 2012 sees the release of his cross-cultural collaboration with renowned Sarode and Rebab player, Rishi Ranjan.
