Jan. 22
Don Adler
Don Alder’s 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. His style of playing incorporates finger-picking with simultaneous percussion to create a wall of sound. 40 per cent of his show includes vocal and he only does original material. His music is ranging from jazz to folk to blues to world music.
