Event: California Guitar Trio
Venue: Thrasher Opera House
Date/Time: Friday, June 28, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:45pm)
Details: The universe of guitar knows no boundaries for The California Guitar Trio (CGT). 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! They will be making a return visit to the historic Thrasher Opera House on Friday, June 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Comprised of Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya and Paul Richards, the group has established a unique, personal connection with audiences. In addition to dazzling musicianship and interplay, their shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concert-goers to feel like they’re part of the music, not just spectators. In fact, the group’s goal is to transcend their instruments, so people focus on the music first, and its considerable technical prowess a distant second.
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.
This performance is support by grants from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation. Hospitality support provided by Green Lake Suites.
