Hailed by Acoustic Guitar magazine as one of the top 20 acoustic guitarists of all time, his performances showcase an eclectic mix of classical and Celtic instrumentals, Gospel originals and cover songs ranging from Bob Dylan to the Beatles. Using sampling and loops along with his Victor Borge-like humour, concertgoers are always treated to a one-of-kind live performance.
The guitar has been a passion for Jay Calder for most of his life. A few months after Jay's first solo guitar CD, "Breakfast With Barnabas" was released, it was nominated at the Canadian Vibe Awards as "Instrumental Album of the Year". He began performing solo guitar in a variety of venues in southern Ontario where he received “Best Acoustic Artist” at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. Jay now travels across Canada playing (and sometimes speaking) at concerts, worship events and church services.
