LIVE at the Alhambra: California Guitar Trio + Montreal Guitar Trio @ Alhambra Theatre
Apr 17 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
LIVE at the Alhambra: California Guitar Trio + Montreal Guitar Trio @ Alhambra Theatre | Hopkinsville | Kentucky | United States

Featuring six virtuoso guitarists from four countries (Japan, Canada, Belgium, and US) CGT +MG3 fuse over 40 years of combined performing experience into one unique six-by-six string phenomensemble. In a pleasantly surprising way CGT’s steel stringed-guitars blend naturally with MG3’s nylon-stringed guitars, as each trios fret boards chase the others’ original com positions and new arrangements of progressive rock, world, jazz and classical music. Inspired in 2009 by an im prom ptu 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.
