Gerhard celebrates the release
of his new “Ed Gerhard Signature Model”
built by Breedlove Guitars.

He has spent the summer touring in China, Japan and Canada successfully introducing this innovative and gorgeous guitar.  Ed will share this new guitar with his audience in Portsmouth.



The journey of the Ed Gerhard Signature Model Dreadnought begins with Ed’s music and personality. For decades the Grammy Award-winning guitarist has entertained audiences worldwide, combining his inimitable technique with his equally inspiring compositions and sense of humor. Since getting his first guitar at age 14, Ed has been crafting his own unique sound, impressing critics and listeners alike across his acclaimed studio and live albums. Known for his gorgeous tone and compositional depth, Gerhard can move a listener with a single note. Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe said it best when he wrote “Gerhard does not write instrumentals. He writes songs only a guitar can sing.” Read More

Weissenborn Interview with Ed

SJ: Thanks for taking the time to talk with us. Who or what inspired you to start playing in the first place?

EG: I always had a musical ear as a kid. When I was about ten years old I saw Segovia on television. That was the first time I’d ever heard the guitar played as a solo instrument and it floored me. It wasn’t until four years later I convinced my Dad to get me a guitar. I started with an interest toward classical music but I couldn’t find any good classical guitar instructors near me so I did what everyone does, went down to the local music store and sat with a nerdy guy and played those horrible things, the songs you never hear outside of the backroom of a music store (laughs). I took about three lessons there. Quit those lessons, got a couple of books. - Read More



edwexchange1The Weissenborn Information Exchange: Interview with Ed

Interview by Aron Radford 

If it wasn't for a chance hearing of Ed Gerhard I would have never fallen in love with the Weissenborn in the first place or became a Weissenborn recording artist myself, and this website you're visiting now simply would not exist. Ever since I first heard the hauntingly beautiful "Homage" I was hooked on the instrument and a fan of the man for life. Read More



Ed’s latest CD "There and Gone"
order your copy today!

there and gone- ed gerhard

"There and Gone" is a mix of unique and original compositions and compelling covers. Mostly solo guitar with occasional overdubs of bass, Weissenborn guitar, lap steel and additional acoustic guitars. Covers include "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Imagine/Across The Universe," "Killing the Blues" and a fresh take on Leo Kottke's lovely "Three Quarter North."For the Weissenborn fans who've asked; yes, there are a couple of Weissenborn tunes on there and they were a lot of fun to do. "Rye Whiskey Mash" has about the loosest timing I've ever heard, and I got to use a bunch of old and new Weissenborns on it. A drunken chorus of Weissenborns, what's better than that? –Ed"

...some of the richest steel-string sounds you’ve ever heard."  - Andy Ellis  Premier Guitar Magazine
