Don Alder Announces Armed and Dangerous European Tour 2015

Don Alder is at home on stages all over the world, and now bringing his guitar magic back to the Europe once again for a tour in Germany, UK and Ireland.

Don Alder will perform songs from various albums, including new songs from his upcoming CD titled "Armed & Dangerous".

He will be performing all original material including fiery guitar instrumentals that will put you on the edge of your seat and his singing with a voice that will soothe your soul.  One could describe his music as “fusion folk, blending pop and instrumental music” while others say "new world fusion with a hinge of bluegrass". Alder describes it as "honest music from the heart".

His 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.

Don Alder, often referred to as the “Hendrix” of Acoustic Guitar is a Multi-Award Winning Acoustic guitarist from Canada. His singing is soulful and heartfelt and his story telling and guitar playing is highly entertaining.

Alder’s other recent activities include touring Europe (Germany, Switzerland, UK and France),  performing at the 2014 All Star Guitar Night, promo video shoot with the Ernie Ball String company, hand selected by Lee Ritenour to the judge advisory panel for the global Six String Theory competition. Since fall 2014 Don is a Riversong endorser; and Riversong (Kamloops, BC, Canada) will be announcing at the upcoming NAMM Show (Jan 22-25, 2015) a Signature Baritone.
