Celebrating their 30th Anniversary!

The performances astounding, diversity unparalleled, the California Guitar Trio is Paul Richards from Los Angeles, Bert Lams from Belgium, and Tom Griesgraber from San Diego. Together, their technical wizardry is breathtaking, as is the wide range of instrumental music, from unique originals to dazzling, cleverly arranged interpretations of music from Queen and the Beatles, to Bach and Beethoven, and surf music from the Ventures.

CGT’s recent collaborations with with bassist Tony Levin and the Montreal Guitar Trio have broadened the scope of their touring repertoire and educational outreach.

“Little about the California Guitar Trio can be considered an expectation”, writes Walter Tunis of the Musical Box. “Their wildly versed and versatile technical command is harmonically and compositionally complete without any semblance of a traditional rhythm section present as aid.”

The trio met while participating in Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craft courses in 1987. They first toured together as part of Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists, an orchestra of acoustic players that served as exponents of the King Crimson founder’s teachings, compositions, and performance approach. In 1991, they founded the California Guitar Trio, which initially gained notoriety opening for the likes of King Crimson, John McLaughlin, and David Sylvian. They have fans in high places too: the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavour used their pieces as wake-up music.
