"What can you say about Don Alder?... Plenty! Don is one of the most original guitarists I've come across. Unique in his acoustic guitar style, he blends great original compositions with a fantastic rhythmic foundation.... always funky with irresistible grooves. He combines this with his terrific, ear catching melodies. On top of which, he sounds like three guitar players playing at once. If you haven't checked him out, do yourself a favor…well worth knowing Don Alder's music and playing," says Lee Ritenour.

If you missed his show in May, on Dec 7th he’ll be back.
