Canada’s hottest guitar ensemble

A renowned Canadian guitar trio will cross the Atlantic to perform in three rural Lancashire venues in May.

Montreal Guitar Trio, described by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as “the hottest guitar ensemble in Canada”, will perform at Croston Old School on Saturday 6 May at 7.30pm. From there they will tour to Arkholme Village Hall on Sunday 7 May at 7.30pm and Clitheroe Library on Tuesday 9 May at 7pm.

Montreal Guitar Trio has quickly established itself as a band to be reckoned with, as well as an interactive force in various musical forms. For over 18 years, the trio’s virtuosity, rigour, creativity and impressive stage presence – where humour and audience interaction go hand in hand – have been winning over listeners around the world.

The trio, composed of guitarists Marc Morin, Glenn Lévesque and Sébastien Dufour, have given a number of concerts in some of the most prestigious venues across Europe, New Zealand and Australia, including the legendary Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the BB King Blues Club In New York City.

The shows form part of Spot On Lancashire’s spring season of touring, taking professional arts events to rural venues and libraries across the county.

Speaking ahead of the performances, Spot On’s Sue Robinson said:

“We’re over the moon to be able to bring such a highly respected trio of incredibly talented musicians to the county. Montreal Guitar Trio are one of the most exciting bands in Canada and we’re really looking forward to seeing how Lancashire’s rural audiences receive them. These guys will blow you away!”
