Ed Gerhard

GRAMMY Award-winning Guitarist Ed Gerhard From sold out tours of Japan, headlining festivals in Italy to venues across the US, Ed Gerhard’s music has touched concert audiences all over the world. Gerhard stands out among instrumental performers for his ability to captivate audiences with a combination of virtuosity, generosity and humor distinctly his own. Known for his gorgeous tone and compositional depth, Gerhard can move a listener with a single note. Performing on 6-string, 12-string, slide guitar or Hawaiian Lap Steel, Gerhard’s musical intensity comes with a sly sense of humor. Whether performing a lush, sensual ballad or a haunting, bitter lap steel melody his distinctive touch is unmistakable. In 1987 Gerhard’s debut album “Night Birds” was released. “Night Birds” garnered rave reviews from guitar fans and the press, including a spot in the Boston Globe’s Critics’ Poll Top Ten Albums of the Year. Shortly after the album’s release, Windham Hill Records included Ed on its Guitar Sampler (Vol.1). One of the highlights of the (over 300,000 units sold) Sampler, is Gerhard’s composition “The Handing Down.” The superior audio quality of Gerhard’s 1993 album “Luna” lead both Neumann and Mackie Designs, two of the world’s most respected manufacturers of professional audio and recording equipment to “endorse” the recording. Ed has released his eighth CD “Sunnyland” in homage to his early blues heroes. He was awarded a GRAMMY for his inclusion on the CD Henry Mancini; Pink Guitar. Warner Brothers released Ed Gerhard; The Guitar Songbook and his guitar work can be heard on recordings by Arlo Guthrie and Jorma Kaukonen and in the Ken Burns’ film "Mark Twain" and the upcoming film “ The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.” Ed is featured in the book “Lap Steel Guitar” alongside legendary players like Greg Leisz, David Lindley, Jerry Byrd and more. In a true collaboration of guitarist and guitar maker, Breedlove Guitars released the “Ed Gerhard Signature Model” guitar. The guitar has become one of Breedlove’s best selling guitars and won the “Player’s Choice Award” by Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Breedlove has just released a Gerhard Weissenborn copy. Here they have combined traditional design with innovative features and contemporary wood combinations. Ed Tours in the US, Europe, Japan & Korea.
