Featuring six virtuoso guitarists from four countries (japan, Canada, Belgium and the United States), California Guitar Trio (CGT) and Montreal Guitar Trio (M3G fuse over 40 years of combined performing experience into one phenomenal six-by-six-string ensemble. In a pleasantly surprising sound sensation, California Guitar Trio’s steel-stringed guitars blend naturally with Montréal Guitar Trio’s nylon-stringed guitars, as each trio’s fret boards chase the other’s original compositions and new arrangements of progressive rock, world, jazz and classical music.
Inspired in 2009 by an impromptu studio session together in Montreal, CGT and MG3 have proceeded to release a live recording (2011), land showcases at numerous arts presenter conferences, and sustain frequent co-bill touring throughout North America; from the Iridium in New York City, to Montreal Jazz Festival (twice), to Napa Valley Opera House, and ever-increasing points in between. And like their performances, the members of the ensemble can appear in a variety of configurations to lead guitar-oriented workshops, school performances, master classes, & demonstrations for musicians and aspirant musicians of all experience levels.
