An acclaimed Canadian finger-style guitar champion will perform in the Upper St. John River Valley this month, with stops in Plaster Rock and Nackawic-Millville.

Described as a champion guitarist, bird whisperer and composer, Ewan Dobson will take the stage on Saturday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. at the Plaster Rock United Baptist Church.

The following Saturday, Sept. 30, Dobson will perform at 2 p.m. in Nackawic-Millville at Kirk United Church on Landegger Drive.

Both performances are free, with donations encouraged to support the artist.

Dobson earned widespread acclaim in the music industry as a guitarist with 18 albums and performances with other artists, including ex-Megadeth member Marty Friedman.

Dobson’s multi-genre performances gained a vast following on YouTube with more than 85 million views.

The talented guitarist is not limited by genre, with styles ranging from classical and finger-style to acoustic metal and folk.

In addition to his efforts as a guitarist, Dobson enjoys a massive social-media following as the “Bird Whisperer of New Brunswick.”

The public can view his world-record-setting footage on YouTube, showing Dobson hand-feeding 26 species of birds in the front yard of his New Brunswick home.
