Don Alder with special guest Lisa Joyce
"Rickshaw Living Room Session"
Alder is an absolute magician on the acoustic guitar, as winner of the 2011 Worldwide Guitar Idol, 2010 Guitar Superstar contest and 2007 International Fingerstyle Championships, Don Alder has earned his spot as one of the top acoustic guitarists in the world. Don is a highly entertaining guitarist, singer/songwriter with a unique style of playing that incorporates fingerpicking with simultaneous percussion to create a wall of sound and is often referred to as the Hendrix of acoustic guitar. His music combines deeply textured melody and rhythm with haunting lyrics. His live performances are jaw dropping. He's been featured in many Guitar Player Magazines and has racked up more than three million youtube views and his CD “Not a Planet” was nominated for 2 industry awards as “Instrumental CD of the Year”. And Don’s heart is as big as his talent. In 1985 he put his music career on hold for 2.5 years to help his lifelong friend Rick Hansen go around the world in a wheelchair.

The Province calls her “electrifying” and proclaims that “Joyce Island is a rarity for Vancouver, a woman who rocks.” With the release of her highly acclaimed debut self-titled EP in April 2013, it is no wonder that Breakfast Television names her “Canada’s newest up and coming musical sensation.”
New York’s Wild Magazine praises Joyce’s “pain-purging melodies that show her affinity for classic country,” whose “vocals pay homage to the sombre stylings of Patsy Cline,” noting similarities to Fleetwood Mac. The Georgia Straight describes the album as “a satisfying listen” with “vocals that invite singing along,” and Discorder raves that “Joyce assumes the confident swagger of Tom-Petty-styled Americana.”
