BREVARD COUNTY • INDIALANTIC, FLORIDA – Ed Gerhard is an American Grammy Award-winning musician, known for his acoustic guitar playing and lap steel guitar music. The guitarist of folk and new age music will stop at Eastminster Presbyterian Church in Indialantic for a single performance on Sunday, March 1 at 3 p.m.

The church at 106 N. Riverside Drive, Indialantic, will host An Afternoon with Ed Gerhard, a free concert of exquisite guitar music, with Gerhard performing material from his current CD, There and Gone, as well as concert favorites.
