Canadian “heavy wood” acoustic guitar master Don Ross is responsible for“effectively defining contemporary fingerstyle guitar in a post-Michael Hedges world…[his] heavy grooves and earworm-like quality of tunes…became blueprints for the style that would become a model for a new generation of fingerstyle guitarists,” says critic Teja Gerkenof Peghead Nation.
A recording artist for Sony/Columbia Records, Narada Records, and now Candyrat Records, Ross is the only two-time winner of theU.S. National Fingerpick Guitar Championship. Don has toured regularly since 1989, across Canada, the USA, a dozen European countries, Japan, Taiwan, China, Australia, Russia and India. He has played with symphony orchestras in Canada and Germany, and collaborated live and on recording with U.S. guitarist Andy McKee, Canadian singer/guitarist Brooke Miller, Canadian guitarist Calum Graham, & Toronto bassist Jordan O’Connor.
