California Guitar Trio (Opening Solo Set By Travis Larson) – Lost Chord Guitars

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.

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, The California Guitar Trio’s (CGT) shows are full of captivating stories and humor that enable concertgoers 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.

CGT’s 17 albumsstreamed over 80 million times on Pandora, offer diverse snapshots of the group’s mercurial muse. The trio’s most recent release Elegy showcases its acoustic side, with beautiful lush originals and innovative cover arrangements of Beatles, Radiohead, Beach and more. Other highlights include Masterworks and album of classical works, with expansive takes on Bach, Beethoven, Arvo Pärt, and Schubert. Andromeda, which combines their many influences into a visionary album of original material; CG3+2, an exploration of kinetic rock territory in collaboration with bassist Tony Levin and drummer Pat Mastelotto; and Echoes,which re-imagines timeless material by artists such as Mike Oldfield, Penguin Café Orchestra, Pink Floyd, and Queen.

Arrowsmith's Cultural Sundays

Following on from last week's highly successful Cultural Sunday event, we are moving on to bring you Prof Lisa Jevbratt with her presentation: What Do Animals See? This Sunday from 5:00 till 7:00 p.m. at Arrowsmith's in Solvang, you will be able to find out the answer to just that.

More about the talk:
Have you ever caught your cat staring at an empty space as if she sees something of great importance?
While there are plenty of animals who can perceive countless more colors than we do, for example many birds and insects, some, such as cats and dogs, perceive fewer. Nevertheless, those animals might see things we cannot...

Prof Lisa Jevbratt will present her iOS app Zoomorph which she developed with the help of animal vision scientists and with the generous support of the Creative Capital Foundation. The app simulates the color vision of non-human animals.

Come and see like an animal!

Cristina Vane – Lost Chord Guitars

Born in Italy to a Sicilian-American father and a Guatemalan mother, Cristina Vane has always had a tenuous relationship with identity and place. She grew up between England, France and Italy, and was fluent in four languages by the time she moved to her fathers’ native United States for university at 18. Despite this, (and perhaps because of it) she had no sense of belonging to any one culture or country. What she did have, however, was an intense love of music. Powered by her signature take on blues and rock, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cristina Vane’s debut album, Nowhere Sounds Lovely, earned her praise from the likes of American Songwriter and Rolling Stone Country, which deemed it ‘mesmerizing stuff’.
