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.

Gerhard is celebrating the highly anticipated release of his new CD "There and Gone," a collection of original compositions and covers including a stunning arrangement of "Imagine/Across the Universe," "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and a concert favorite on Weissenborn, "Killing the Blues." " ...some of the richest steel-string sounds you’ve ever heard. " - Andy Ellis, Premier Guitar Magazine

His critically acclaimed holiday recordings, “Christmas” and “On A Cold Winter’s Night,” continue to garner raves. The 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 "Mark Twain" 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.

In 2010 Gerhard’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
