      Join us for this very special evening with one of the country's finest acoustic guitarists. Gerhard will perform soulful arrangements of well-loved carols, as well as his own concert favorites. Fans of guitar music and Christmas alike will want to be a part of this memorable show.
      “These Christmas Concerts are more special to me every year. The music, the audience.... the whole experience is profound for me. Sharing this experience with everyone is what being a musician is all about.” -Ed
      Gerhard’s critically acclaimed holiday recordings, “Christmas” and “On A Cold Winter’s Night,” continue to garner raves. Boston Globe calls “Christmas,” “...the best holiday recording of the year... rivetingly lovely...this is a gem.” His music is featured in the Ken Burns' documentary "MarkTwain" and "The National Parks:America's Best Idea." Gerhard was awarded a GRAMMY® Award for his inclusion on the CD “Henry Mancini; Pink Guitar” a collection of Henry Mancini compositions. Gerhard arranged and performed Moon River.
      Ed’s CD “Luna” was Chosen by Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s 20th Anniversary List of 240 Essential Albums. “This soulful album of original compositions rich in melody, chordal complexity and stylistic variety proves why Gerhard is considered to have the most exquisite acoustic guitar tone on the planet.” - Acoustic Guitar Magazine
