His ensemble work can be heard on recordings by Arlo Guthrie and Jorma Kaukonen. Influenced by John Fahey, Gerhard began composing and arranging music for solo guitar in an array of alternate tunings. In 1987, Gerhard released his first album, Night Birds.[4] Virtue Records was established in 1991 as a record label for instrumental acoustic guitar and as the exclusive label for Ed Gerhard. Every December since 1982, Gerhard has performed a seasonal concert in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Recent shows over two nights included a food drive for the Seacoast Family Food Pantry. In addition, a portion of proceeds from the concerts benefited the ACT ONE; Artists’ Collaborative Theatre of New England.[5] Gerhard was awarded a Grammy award for his participation in the 2004 CD Henry Mancini: Pink Guitar (Solid Air SACD2048), for which he arranged and performed “Moon River.”[6] In 2012, after six years of work, Gerhard release the album There and Gone.[7] Gerhard tours in North America, Europe, and Asia. He lives with his wife Kelli in rural New Hampshire, where he moved in 1977.
