In 1991 Paul Richards (USA), Bert Lams (Belgium) & Hideo Moriya (Japan) created the California Guitar Trio (CGT) after initially meeting at Robert Fripp’s (King Crimson) Guitar Craft Course in 1987. The trio has toured worldwide since then frequently sharing the stage with Tony Levin (King Crimson). CGT has released 12 albums: 7 studio CDs featuring original CGT songs and a variety of other works spanning numerous genres, 4 live releases, and a Christmas CD with familiar and not-so familiar Christmas music. Lams, who graduated with a concert level degree in classical guitar studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, has also made a solo album of Bach preludes titled ‘Nascent’.  Their 2010 release ‘Andromeda’ was named the Best CDs of 2010 in the instrumental category at the Indie Acoustic Project. CGT’s music was featured on television coverage for the 1998, 2000, 2002 & 2004 Olympics, they performed on the 2003 Grammy Award Show and they also provided wake up music for the crew of NASA’s Space Shuttle Endeavor as it orbited Earth. Their music ranges all the way from King Crimson to Bach, fusing rock, blues, jazz, world music, progressive, as well as the quintessential California musical genre surf music. The California Guitar Trio's stunning virtuosity and sly sense of humor have earned them an enthusiastic following and wide notoriety. You can’t miss this show!
