In 1991 in a small English village in Dorset, 3 young men from Belgium, Japan, Salt Lake City met in retreat with legendry rock guitarist Robert Fripp of King Crimson. (Excuse a proud sister) Robert considers his life work teaching. Not just guitar playing, more about the discipline of how to live one’s life.
The three young men became the California Guitar Trio. Tonight I am introducing them and telling this story at Freight and Salvage in Berkeley.
CGT’s first public performance was on Feb 7th, 1991 in Los Angeles. This is their 20th Anniversary Tour!
They have played in 47 states, 20 countries, 5 continents. Their largest audience was 60,000 people in Quebec City, Canada.
Andromeda is their newest CD and is their 12th officially released CD. They also have CDs of live performances. This evening Sister Fripp (as fans of my brother call me) will be shamelessly selling the California Guitar Trio CDs.
