About Don Ross: Don Ross is one of the most exciting and innovative acoustic guitarists working today. His unique explorations and rhythmic compositions which borrow from jazz, folk, classical, and rock have brought him worldwide attention, and his fiery and emotional performances are legendary. He is the only two-time National Fingerpicking Champion, and has been touring and recording for over 20 years, and this marks his first visit to the Seacoast area. To quote Bruce Cockburn: "Nobody does what Don Ross does with an acoustic guitar. He takes the corners so fast you think he's going to roll, but he never loses control. Guitar players take note; the wizardry on these tracks will inspire the brave - and send the faint of heart runnning for cover." A Don Ross concert will leave your soul stirred and your jaw dropped.
