Had an awesome time with my buds @therealmckee and @danny_choi playing gigs in DC, Pittsburgh and Philly! Always lots of laughs, music, and calories. We have a nice duet of Andy's tune For My Father that I cannot wait to share. More gigs coming up with Andy's Guitar Masters tour and Musicarium!
Greece 🇬🇷 is a country full of beautiful people and history. This is the Rotunda of Galerius in Thessaloníki constructed around 306 AD. It was originally built as a temple, possibly dedicated to Zeus, then converted into a church many decades later, then 1200 years later a into mosque, then over 700 years later back to a church and nowadays it towers high as a historic monument and cultural icon of the city. Nearly 100 feet tall, with walls over 20 feet thick, this structure is astounding....SO.....of course I had to test the REVERB!!! Ahhhh!! The sustain!!!! 🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻 Special thanks to my dear friend @peterjaygood for suggesting I do this and recording this clip while in Greece on a tour with @evaatmatzidou in December 2018.
Looking forward to playing at City Winery in DC and Club Cafe in Pittsburgh with my dear friend @therealmckee next Thursday and Friday! trevorgordonhall.com/shows @danny_choi @therealmckee see you soon my brothers!!
I grew up listening to Will Ackerman and the rest of the Windham Hill gang. It is a tremendous honor all these years later to have become friends and record/tour with Will. Through him I was introduced to so many great people and musicians including the special souls on this exciting new project called 4 Guitars. This was recorded at Imaginary Road Studios by @universal_noises and includes Will Ackerman, @vindownes, @toddmosbymusic and myself playing solo pieces, duets, trios, quartets, staying true to the classic Windham hill sound while throwing in some new influences. The iconic Windham Hill aesthetic shaped all of us on this project individually and now getting to collaborate as a group in the studio and perform live together with that same spirit is such a blast. Honored to be a part of this. The record will be released in the coming months and select tour dates around USA starting this Saturday January 12th 7:30 PM @nextstagearts in Putney VT. Here is a video made by @toddboston and @artfilmstudios giving some of the story behind the project. #windhamhill #fingerstyleguitar #acousticguitar #fingerstylegtr #calmmusic #musictour #willackerman #vindownes #toddmosby #trevorgordonhall
Exactly one year ago yesterday I had a crazy dream. I was kindly invited to play a concert with an unreal lineup of players. I was hanging out with @johnmayer backstage after playing my set and before he went on. I chatted, laughed, ate food and jammed with others on the bill including Steve Miller , David Bromberg, Jorma Kaukonen, Laurence Juber, Nick Forster, Craig Thatcher, Ernie Sites and the great @dickboak . Then to finish the night I somehow found myself onstage playing “The Joker” with everyone together and Steve Miller himself turned to me and said “Kalimba solo!!” Now at this point reality set in that I had worked hard at composing with my Kalimba but sadly remained a dreadful improviser with it :) especially in front of such incredible improvisers. And so with a sore face from smiling the whole night, overflowing with gratitude for every opportunity I had been given, especially being on stage at that moment with that amazing group of people, I just took a deep breath and dove in muddling through an honest attempt at a solo - while having the time of my life. Good lesson to me yet again to just push past fear of failure and try new things without worrying so much. Well I keep seeing videos pop up from time to time of this concert so it appears it was real after all even if it still feels like it was just a dream! Grateful to the man we were celebrating at the concert Dick Boak for his many years at Martin guitar, his friendship, support and for his invitation to me to be a part of this historic concert. I will cherish these memories for the years to come.
Thank you to all who came out to the Greece shows and workshops! I had an amazing time, met many new friends and can’t wait to go back! Thanks to Eva Atmatzidou for organizing the tour and for the great hospitality. Αγαπώ την Ελλάδα 🇬🇷❤️🤘🏻👍🏻🥗🍻🍽🏔🏛
