Norm LeDonne was always interested in music. His interest in guitar was started, as with so many others, by The Beatles, in 1963. Receiving his my first guitar at the age of 12, and his first electric guitar at 13, he began to play in bands almost immediately. Throughout his teen years, he was in bands continuously, playing everything from polkas to hard rock. He took a hiatus from playing music during his college and post-graduate years. His love of music did not die but was put on hold.
The fire began to burn again in 1999, when he put down his electric guitar and picked up the acoustic guitar, changing style from electric to fingerstyle acoustic, teaching himself. In 2004, he learned of the Harp Guitar after reading an article on Michael Hedges. He has taken up this instrument, and it has become the primary instrument for his original compositions.
In November 2010, he retired from his career as a scientist and have taken up his life-long dream of becoming a performing musician. He has built a repertoire of songs, from Bach to The Beatles, playing on harp guitar, six string acoustic, and both round and square necked resonator guitars. He has also started to write and tell stories, to bring his audience more into the music. The result is a unique combination of music and stories.
