Eric McDonald is one of New England's premier acoustic performers and instructors. Born and raised in the Boston area, he grew up steeped in Beantown's vibrant music scene. In 2007, his band Jaded Mandolin began to gain recognition in the area. Their debut CD drew praise from the area's top folk critics. Since then, Eric has gained extensive experience and training. He has studied with some of the nation's best players, including local sideman Sean Staples and mandolin phenom Joe Walsh. Eric studied at Berklee College of Music under the tutelage of John McGann, Eugene Friesen and many other world class musicians. Eric is now building a reputation for being a fine instructor himself, teaching workshops and lessons privately, at camps during the summer and at the Passim School of Music in Cambridge.
