Concert Featuring Don Ross

Don grew up in a musical household; his father is an operatically trained singer with a fondness for playing the bagpipes. At an early age he taught himself basic piano skills before taking up the guitar. Don eventually studied Music at Toronto’s York University where he focused on composition, electronic music, and sound recording. In 1988, Don became the first Canadian to win the U.S. National Fingerpick Guitar Championship. He won again in 1996, still the only two-time winner of the competition.
Don tours throughout the world and has collaborated with a number of artists in addition to composing scores for television, radio and film, along with producing and recording engineering for a variety of other musicians. Besides acoustic guitar Don plays; electric guitar, slide dobro and lapsteel guitar, harp guitar, piano, keyboards, bass guitar, drums and he sings too! He has many albums to his name (to numerous to mention) the latest of which is “A Million Brazilians”.
Don leaves Bragg Creek to tour Korea and Japan. We are fortunate to be able to spend what will be an unforgettable evening with this Master, one of the world’s foremost fingerstyle guitar players.
