The Road Back

Guitarist Don Alder returns to Tractorgrease Sept 29

Susanne Schwager



n October 2015, Tractorgrease Café hosted the release party of Don's latest album "A&D".


Now, world champion finger-style guitarist Don Alder will return to Chilliwack, BC to perform at Tractorgrease Café on Sept 29th, 2016.


Don Alder's music is all original, a fusion of jazz, folk, roots, blues, bluegrass and world music. With his special fingerstyle and percussion technique he can create a wall of sound.

Alder tours the world constantly, performing in venues from the size of living rooms to arenas with his unique guitar skills and repertoire of crafted solo guitar and vocal compositions.

He has won multiple prestigious guitar awards throughout his career, including in 2015, the Dominic Troiano Award. In May 2016 Don Alder was nominated again for a Western Canadian Music Award.


"What can you say about Don Alder? Plenty! Don is one of the most original guitarists I've come across," says Lee Ritenour. "Unique in his acoustic guitar style, he blends great original compositions with a fantastic rhythmic foundation and always funky with irresistible grooves. Then he cooks it all up with 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!"

If you missed his show last year, on Sept 29th he’ll be back.
