California Guitar Trio Comes to Calumet Theatre June 22nd

June 21, 2019

Calumet, MI – Guitar mastery comes to the Calumet Theatre with The California Guitar Trio, presented by ThermoAnalytics, on Saturday, June 22nd at 7:30 pm.

The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for The California Guitar Trio. Since 1991, the group has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres. The trio’s questing spirit drives it to explore the intersections between rock, jazz, classical, and world music. It even throws in the occasional surf or spaghetti Western tune for good measure.

CGT’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.
The trio’s output has made a major global impact, having served as the soundtrack for 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 Endeavour. 27 years and 1,800+ gigs later, the CGT remains intensely committed to explore, evolve and communicate a wide-ranging musical worldview.

Tickets: $25 & $22. Reserved Seating. Historic Preservation Fee included in ticket price. Member discounts available. Call the Box Office at 906-337-2610, stop at 340 Sixth St., Calumet, MI from 12-5 pm Wed thru Fri OR order tickets online at www.calumettheatre.com.
