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.

Don Alder, often referred to as the “Hendrix” of Acoustic Guitar is a Multi-Award Winning Acoustic guitarist from Canada. Hot off his recent Europe tour Alder continues to “Wow” audiences around the world with his “jaw dropping” one man band act. His singing is soulful and heartfelt and his story telling and guitar playing is highly entertaining. 

Guitar Player Magazine Senior Editor Michael Molenda says “People will stand and clap for Alder as he is a Guitar Star in the making and can hold an audience with the best of the seasoned pros”. Ray Daniels, the Manager of Rush, says “Alder’s unique style of playing with simultaneous percussion creates a wall of sound and should be famous around the world”. 

Alder’s music also speaks for itself; his 2009 CD “Not A Planet” was nominated for two prestigious Music Industry Awards. In May 2016 was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Awards (Instrumental Artist of the Year). 

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.
