“Eclectic, Energetic and Spectacular”
When it comes to bridging diverse genres of music, the MG3, which CBC described as “the hottest guitar ensemble in Canada,” has quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with. For more than 13 years, the trio’s virtuosity, rigor, creativity, and dynamic stage presence — they are noted for the wit and warmth of their interactions with audiences — have been winning applause around the world. They won the 2011 Opus Prize for concert of the year in the Jazz / World Music category. They have given hundreds of concerts in prestigious venues in North America, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia, including the BB King Blues Club in New York, the Rundetårnet in Copenhagen, and the legendary Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
What the media says…
“The Montreal Trio’s guitars know no limits. They journey along with brio from jazz to classical music, from India to Canada. The Ussac Church has been swept away on the thunder of their strings!” – La Montagne Newspaper – FRANCE
“… They delivered loads of infectious good humour and some solid ensemble playing that skirted the four corners of the musical world.” – Bill Rankin, Edmonton Journal – CANADA
“… Their debut in Germany was one of the most unforgettable events in the festival’s history, both artistically and programme-wise. […] The audience applauded and didn’t quieten down until the event organiser had promised to engage the Montreal Guitar Trio again next year…” – Klauss Ross, Bergsträßer Anzeiger – GERMANY
