Montreal Guitar Trio
Described by the CBC as the «hottest» guitar ensemble in Canada, MG3 has quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with, as well as an interactive force in various musical forms. For over 20 years, the trio’s virtuosity, rigour, creativity and impressive stage presence – where humour and interacting with the public go hand in hand – have been winning over audiences around the world.
Comprised of guitarists Sébastien Dufour, Glenn Lévesque and Marc Morin, the Trio has given hundreds of concerts throughout North America, Europe, New Zealand and Australia in the most prestigious venues including the legendary Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Rundetårnet in Copenhagen and the BB King Blues Club in New York.
Winner of the 2011 Opus Award for «concert of the year» in the Jazz & World Music category, MG3 has
released eight albums, including their two latest ones Danzas (2017) & Der Prinz (2014) on Analekta label, which earned him two nominations at ADISQ for the «instrumental album» of the year.
Throughout the years, the trio has collaborated and shared the stage with world-renowned ensembles and artists, such as the Orchestre symphonique de Québec, Jorane, Solorazaf and Don Ross. Their most memorable collaboration to date is, without a doubt, with the California Guitar Trio (CGT), when both ensembles joins forces to brilliantly performed some of the greatest rock classics from The Beatles, Radiohead, David Bowie, a few «spaghetti western» themes by Ennio Morricone, as well as some of their original compositions. After the release of a first album + LIVE (2011) and more than 300 performances across Canada and the United States, the sextet, made up of MG3 and CGT, launched in the spring 2019 In a Landscape, its first studio album.
