A guitar summit!
The California Guitar Trio plays progressive rock, surf music, jazz, blues, country, probably the definitive version of "Bohemian Rhapsody," and some traditional North African and Asian sounds for good measure. Like most Californians, the three members of the California Guitar Trio all come from someplace else: Bert Lams is Belgian, Hideyo Moriya is from Japan (where the band has a strong following), and Paul Richards is from Salt Lake City. All three felt the call to push themselves to the limit by enrolling in Robert Fripp’s challenging Guitar Craft courses, where they first met in 1987. They're joined tonight by The Montreal Guitar Trio, who have been called "the hottest guitar ensemble in Canada" by the CBC. The trio, composed of guitarists Sébastien Dufour, Glenn Lévesque and Marc Morin, has given hundreds of concerts in some of the most prestigious venues across North America, Europe, New Zealand and Australia, including the legendary Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the BB King Blues Club in New York City. The two trios will perform separately and together in a massed guitar group like nothing you've ever heard before!
