Great Musician Plays Locally
I see in last Thursday's Granite State News in Section B, Page 7 that guitarist Ed Gerhard will play at the Wakefield Opera House on Saturday, September 19, at 7:30 PM. This news would mean nothing to me, were it not for the fact that I saw Ed Gerhard perform during an Arlo Guthrie concert in Concord. Ed was a surprise guest of Arlo's and a musician with whom I was not familiar. I learned two things at that concert. Ed Gerhard is a New Hampshire resident and an incredibly talented guitar player.
Gerhard will bring to the Wakefield concert his new Hawaiian Style guitar by Breedlove guitars. Breedlove is building these new Hawaiian lap-style copies in collaboration with Gerhard. Gerhard's music is featured in the Ken Burns documentary, "Mark Twain" and the upcoming, "The National Parks: America's Best Idea."
If you can attend this concert you should do so and if you didn't find it absolutely delightful you can complain to me.
