Guitar at its best…tonight!
Extreme Guitar Duo at SJCT Friday, October 19
American Keith Knight and Canadian Don Alder, also known as Extreme Guitar Duo, join guitar forces for a high-energy concert on San Juan Community Theatre’s Whittier stage Friday, October 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Alder combines fingerpicking with simultaneous percussion on the soundboard while Knight showcases his versatility on a wide range of guitars and mandolin. Their acoustic collaboration covers a variety of music genres, from modern fingerstyle guitar to tapping, Appalachian, delta/ragtime blues and calypso.
Alder, who is also a singer and recording artist, has won several guitar competitions, including the International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship; he has also appeared on Canada’s Got Talent.
Guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and recording artist Knight has shared the stage with such musicians as The Smothers Brothers and Melanie.
