As winner of the 2015 Domenic Troiano Guitar Award (CDN), 2011 Worldwide Guitar Idol (held in London, UK), 2010 Guitar Superstar contest (LA, USA) and the 2007 International Finger style Championships, Don Alder from Vancouver, BC has earned his place as one of the top acoustic guitarists in the world and is the only guitarist to win all of the top prestigious guitar competitions armed with just an acoustic guitar.
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 is also recognized as one of the of the world's top harp guitarists.

Lee Ritenour (2016): "What can you say about Don Alder?... Plenty! Don is one of the most original guitarists I've come across.

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!"
