    The Museum of Making Music welcomes Bert Lams and Tom Griesgraber for a very special concert showcasing the harmonic fusion of acoustic guitar and Chapman Stick.As a member of the renowned California Guitar Trio, guitarist Bert Lams nightly blends musical styles as diverse as Beethoven, symphonies, Bach preludes, progressive rock, surf guitar, and spaghetti westerns together with a unique cello-like guitar tuning.His affinity for jazz and rock in addition to classical music, led him to continue his studies and eventually tour with English guitarist Robert Fripp, before founding the CGT.Tom Griesgraber is one of the world's most active players of the Chapman Stick, a unique 12-string guitar/bass hybrid. An honors graduate of Berklee College of Music, he has performed across the US and Europe as a so-loist and with his groups Marotta/Griesgraber and Agent 22. "Sketchbook," his latest solo CD journeys from instrumental rock, to jazz and classical music with original compositions and unique takes on well known covers.Much like the original prairie travelers, Griesgraber and Lams have taken a leap of faith on their musical journey. "In an age where downloading singles is more the norm, we've gone the opposite direction and said 'here is a body of work that stands on its own.' Something continually drove us to pursue the music to this point. It's a unified whole and that's something we're quite proud of."
