Portland Ovations Presents: California Guitar Trio & Montreal Guitar Trio Hannaford Hall, USM Campus | 88 Bedford St. 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Event website

Featuring all six virtuoso guitarists from California Guitar Trio (CGT) and Montreal Guitar Trio (MG3), the musicianship on stage fuses over 40 years of combined performing experience into one unique “phenomensemble.” The bright tones of CGT’s steel strings blend effortlessly with MG3’s mellow nylon-stringed sound, as the trios masterfully come together on each other’s original compositions and new arrangements of progressive rock, world, jazz and classical music. Inspired by a 2010 impromptu studio session in Montreal, the trios continue to tour together from the Iridium in New York City, to Montreal Jazz Festival, to Napa Valley Opera House.
