About Ed Gerhard
From Tokyo to Rome and venues across the US, Ed Gerhard's music has touched audiences all over the world. Performing on 6-string, 12-string, slide guitar or Acoustic Hawaiian Lap Slide, Gerhard captivates his audiences with virtuosity, generosity and sly humor. Known for his gorgeous tone and compositional depth, Gerhard can move a listener with a single note. Scott Alalrik of the Boston Globe said it best when he wrote 'Gerhard does not write instrumentals. He writes songs only a guitar can sing.

Ed’s latest CD "There and Gone" is a mix of unique and original compositions and compelling covers. Mostly solo guitar with occasional overdubs of bass, Weissenborn guitar, lap steel, and additional acoustic guitars. Covers include "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Imagine/Across The Universe," "Killing the Blues" and a fresh take on Leo Kottke's lovely "Three Quarter North." For the Weissenborn fans who've asked; yes, there are a couple of Weissenborn tunes on there and they were a lot of fun to do. "Rye Whiskey Mash" has about the loosest timing I've ever heard, and I got to use a bunch of old and new Weissenborns on it. A drunken chorus of Weissenborns, what's better than that?

DISCLAIMER: Eventbrite uses the terminology "ticket" inappropriately in the context of these Private Concerts. As you know, I recommend a donation of $29 per person to support the artists. We are not and do not sell tickets -- even though you may receive a registration confirmation by email that uses the term "Ticket.". We are simply using this website/portal to manage the expected sufficiency of limited seating and communicate details about this private, by-invitation-only, music party. I am not operating a commercial enterprise and other than the expense of cookies and bottled water, all donations are paid to the artists involved in the show. This concert is not open to the public - no walk-ins will be allowed.
