CGT / MG3 concert


Saw a wonderful show at TCAN in Natick MA on Friday night - California Guitar Trio and Montreal Guitar Trio. I've seen CGT before; they're composed of Fripp Guitar Craft alums and still use the New Standard Tuning. The MG3 was an unknown and a total delight. Both groups have a similar formula - a mix of original material and off-beat covers. Each trio did a set before the break, and then the second half of the evening was both bands onstage together for a sextet. There was interesting contrast between the two groups - CGT used steel string guitars, no vocals, and seemed the more "serious" of the two. MG3 used nylon strings, some vocals, and was much funnier (in a good way) onstage. Both were very enjoyable.

Here's a taste:
