Esteemed classical guitarist Don Neander returns to Busselton on Friday, January 18, to perform at the Weld Theatre, playing works of a range of periods including renaissance, romantic and 20th century music.

The skilled traditional guitarist has played in blues bands, pit orchestras and regional orchestras and has taught guitar at several prestigious schools.

Neander will play a solo concert in Busselton, displaying his 40 years of experience and craft.

After leaving his home town of Melbourne at just 15, Neander learnt at what was the Sydney Spanish guitar centre, which later became the Australian Institute of Music.

After four years in Sydney Neander returned to Melbourne, where he started teaching guitar in schools and studied composition and arranging with film composer Frank Strangio.

The concert will cover composers from England, Germany, Spain and Brazil and will start at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available at Callows newsagency or at the door for $20 adults, $15 concession, $10 students and free for children under 10.
