Henegar Center for the Arts

features all six virtuoso guitarists from California
Guitar Trio (CGT) and Montreal Guitar Trio (MG3).
Representing four countries (Japan, Canada, Belgium,
and US), they fuse over 40 years of combined
performing experience into one unique
six-by-6-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
compositions and new arrangements of progressive
rock, world, jazz and classical music.
Inspired in 2010 by
an impromptu 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. The two trios tour again
in 2012/13 visiting 20 cities (and counting) in the
United States and Canada.
