Montreal Guitar Trio (MG3) and California Guitar Trio (CGT) have combined their passion and talent to create a great evening of guitar. A unique opportunity to hear six virtuoso guitarists from four countries (Japan, Canada, Belgium, and US), playing original compositions and innovative arrangements of everything from movie soundtracks, progressive rock ’n’ roll, world, jazz, and classical music. Inspired by an impromptu studio session together in Montreal in 2009, CGT’s steel stringed-guitars blend naturally with MG3’s nylon-stringed guitars. CGT and MG3 have toured together extensively in North America, playing everything from Queen, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Rush, to original compositions by the members of MG3 and CGT.

The Montreal Guitar Trio were described by the CBC as “the hottest guitar ensemble in Canada.” Founded in 1998, and coming from a classical background, members sing and write much of their material, and have given hundreds of concerts in North America and Europe. The trio’s eclectic sound, where jazz and world music intertwine, takes listeners on a journey through many cultures — from the exotic melodies of India to the hot rhythms of South America, by way of the Balkans and the traditional music of Quebec. Montreal Guitar Trio band members are Sébastien Dufour, Marc Morin and Glenn Lévesque.

The California Guitar Trio’s stunning virtuosity and sly sense of humor have earned them an enthusiastic following in the progressive, acoustic, and classical music scenes. Fusing classical, rock, blues, jazz, world music, progressive, and quintessential California ‘surf music’, the Trio has been featured on everything from the Olympics to the wake-up music for the crew aboard NASA’s Space Shuttle Endeavor. Over the past 14 years of nearly incessant touring, the California Guitar Trio has shared the stage with superb musicians and performers such as: King Crimson, Jon Anderson, Tito Puente, Taj Mahal, Peter Rowan and Tony Rice, Dark Star Orchestra, Leftover Salmon, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, David Sylvian, Adrian Legg, Kaki King and many more. The trio is comprised of Paul Richards of Salt Lake City, Utah, Bert Lams of Brussels, Belgium, and Hideyo Moriya of Tokyo, who first met in England at one of Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craft Courses in 1987. After completing several of these intensive courses, the three toured worldwide with Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists.

“If you think you have heard guitar music, you haven’t heard these six fill the room with sound”. — The Sun Valley Journal, Idaho 2013

“… this ensemble is much more than a simple guitar sextet…The experience is unique!” — Yves Bernard, Le Devoir, 2012
