California Guitar Trio

The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for The California Guitar Trio. Since 1991, the group has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres. 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. In addition to dazzling musicianship and interplay, The California Guitar Trio's (CGT) shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concert-goers 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.

CGT's 14 albums, streamed over 47 million times on Pandora, offer diverse snapshots of the group’s mercurial muse. The trio’s most recent release Masterworks showcases its classical side, with expansive takes on Bach, Beethoven, Arvo Pärt, and Schubert. Other highlights include Andromeda, which combines their many influences into a visionary album of original material; CG3+2, an exploration of kinetic rock territory in collaboration with bassist Tony Levin and drummer Pat Mastelotto; and Echoes, which reimagines timeless material by artists such as Mike Oldfield, Penguin Café Orchestra, Pink Floyd, and Queen.

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.

Opening for California Guitar Trio will be Fabio Mittino, an Italian guitarist, active with his group Fluon and as acoustic duo with Bert Lams from California Guitar Trio, playing their arrangements of the music by Gurdjieff/DeHartmann. His new album is called "Simple Music For Difficult People,” with original compositions played on the electric guitar.
