  • California Guitar Trio

    Date: Friday, April 12th, 2019 - 7:00 PM

    CALIFORNIA GUITAR TRIO – is Celebrating 25 years of making music together. Comprised of Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya and Paul Richards, they have established a unique, personal connection with audiences. In addition to dazzling musicianship and interplay, CGT’s shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concert goers to feel like they’re part of the music, not just spectators.

    This exciting guitar trio will be coming to Cortez on Friday, April 12, 2019, to play one of their unique concerts at the Montezuma-Cortez High School Auditorium under the sponsorship of SouthWest Colorado Concerts. The concert will begin at 7:00 p.m.

    The California Guitar Trio has made a major global impact in their 25 year history, having served as the soundtrack of Olympics coverage, and programs on CNN, CBS, NBC, and ESPN. They have fans in high places too: NASA used their music to wake the crew aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor.

    CALIFORNIA GUITAR TRIO’s lineup is truly the sum of its distinct parts: A Utah native now residing in Los Angeles, Paul Richards immersed himself in rock, blues, jazz and folk during his early days and while attending the University of Utah’s jazz guitar program. Bert Lams, originally from Belgium, graduated from the prestigious Royal Conservatory of Music in Brussels, specializing in classical guitar. Tokyo-born Hideyo Moriya began his guitar journey with surf music and British rock, before relocating to Boston to study at Berklee.

    Recently, CGT has been concertizing within a six-guitar format with the Montreal Guitar Trio, playing several concerts in the mid-west in 2014.

    25 years and 1,800 gigs later, the CALIFORNIA GUITAR TRIO remains intensely committed to explore, evolve and communicate a wide-ranging musical worldview.

    This is a concert for everyone – old and young – especially if one plays guitar!
