Hartt & Soul Productions Presents: Benefitting One World
California Guitar Trio
Show Time : 8:00 PM
The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for The California Guitar Trio as they embark on their 26th year together. Since 1991, the group has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres releasing 15 albums along the way. The trio’s questing spirit drives it to explore the intersections between rock, jazz, classical, and world music. It even throws in the occasional surf or spaghetti Western tune for good measure.
Comprised of Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya, and Paul Richards, the group has established a unique, personal connection with audiences. The trio’s output has made a major global impact, having served as the soundtrack for Olympics coverage, and programs on CNN, CBS, NBC, and ESPN. They have fans in high places too: NASA used their music to wake the crew aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour. In addition to dazzling musicianship and interplay, CGTs shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concertgoers to feel like they’re part of the music, not just spectators. In fact, the group’s goal is to transcend their instruments, so people focus on the music first, and its considerable technical prowess a distant second.
