Singer, songwriter and “guitar wizard” Don Alder will present an evening of acoustic guitar at Char’s Landing in Port Alberni.

Don Alder has earned his place as one of the top acoustic guitar performers in the world, and is the only guitarist to win all of the top prestigious guitar competitions armed with just an acoustic guitar. In 2017, he won artist of the year at the Vancouver Island Music Awards.

Alder continues to wow audiences around the world with his “jaw-dropping” one-man band act. His singing is soulful and heartfelt, and his storytelling and guitar playing is highly entertaining. His music is a unique combination of deeply textured melody and story.
