This Wednesday, June 3, 9--11:30 p.m., at Folk Night at
The Ship Pub in St. John's, Newfoundland, the headliner
is acoustic guitar virtuoso Ewan Dobson.

Cover is $5, there are door prizes, there is an open
mic set between the two headline sets, and open mic
performers get a free beer. Also the kitchen is open
until 8 p.m.

Here is the blurb from nlfolk.com :

In February 2015, EWAN DOBSON embarks on a 3 month coast-to-coast North
American Tour, hitting all major markets! North America is big, so Ewan
Dobson will release not one, but two new albums to support his North
American tour. ACOUSTIC METAL II is the first of these two new releases
and is the follow-up to the Acoustic Metal 1. 12-String Guitar includes
12-string versions of material from EwanŽs previous albums along with 5
new unreleased songs. The show will include material spanning EwanŽs
entire catalogue performed fingerstyle and with flatpick.

ACOUSTIC METAL II

On Friday, July 4th, 2014, guitar virtuoso & YouTube sensation EWAN
DOBSON releases his 9th solo album, Acoustic Metal II. Recorded in
complete isolation in the backwoods of Canada just after completing his
tour of Europe , Acoustic Metal II is the follow-up to Acoustic Metal
(CandyRat Records, 2013). and features multi-tracked acoustic guitar
played with a flat-pick. With Acoustic Metal II, Ewan shows that
acoustic guitar can definitely be metal, and you donŽt necessarily need
distortion.

"Think Spanish Flamenco in a head on crash with a bus filled with Kerry
King, Dave Mustaine and Dimebag Darrell! It¹s when you listen to this
record you can easily understand why ex-Megadeth guitar virtuoso Marty
Friedman selected Ewan to play the acoustic parts that appears on Marty
Friedman¹s latest album Inferno. Friedman was even quoted saying ŽEwan
played the parts so beautifully and with so much expertise and flair
that Jason (Becker) and I were in awe of his performance.Ž Lets be fair,
that statement alone deserves a round of applause." -
