Erik Visser's One Man Parade. The First solo program of the foreman of Flairck.

Erik Visser is undoubtedly one of Holland?s most acclaimed acoustic guitarists, but "One Man Parade" is Erik?s first solo production.
Over the past 25 years he has been working on theatre productions with his band Flairck; the group released 20 albums and played nearly 2000 concerts in all corners of the globe.
Until now there has been little time for his solo work, but now, 40 years after he started to play the guitar, Erik will realise his long-term ambition to concentrate on the art of acoustic solo guitar playing.

The recent release of ?One Man Parade? demonstrates Erik's skill and diversity as a musician. On the album he plays 6, 8 and 12 string guitars as well as the unique resonance guitar. He plays both his own compositions, as well as arrangements of music you would not expect to hear on guitar. Erik lived in Ireland for many years, and this is reflected in the striking Irish instrumentals which can be heard on the album.
Erik has recently started the ?One Man Parade? tour, and each concert incorporates anecdotes and stories about the significance of the pieces. "One Man Parade" is not only a great guitar performance, but also a personal and humorous story.
