An evening with Guitar Champion Michael Chapdelaine and acoustic instrumentalist Trevor Gordon Hall at Atlanta's Red Light Café!
Michael Chapdelaine is the only guitarist ever to win First Prize in the world's top competitions in both the Classical and Fingerstyle genres, the Guitar Foundation of America International Classical Guitar Competition, and the National Fingerstyle Championships at the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield, KS. From New York's Lincoln Center to the Cactus Cafe in Austin, from Milano to Bangkok, Michael continues to enchant, dazzle and surprise audiences and critics alike as he redefines the modern acoustic guitar with his amazing technique, soulful expressiveness, and versatility as a performer, composer and arranger / producer. His performances, played on both steel string and classical guitars, include musical styles ranging from blues to Bach to country to rhythm n' blues as he wins his audiences hearts with breath taking technique and the poetic magic of his original musical portraits and landscapes.
Trevor Gordon Hall is an acoustic instrumentalist whose compositions range in style from driving rhythms to soft melodic phrases. Trevor caught the eye of nine-time Grammy winning producer Joe Nicolo (James Taylor, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, etc.), who produced two of Trevor’s releases: Finding My Way and Let Your Heart Be Light. These releases garnered high reviews and gave Trevor such opportunities as recording with bass virtuoso Michael Manring and sharing the stage with guitarists such as Phil Keaggy, Erik Mongrain and Patty Larkin. His most recent project has led him to collaborate with various builders to redesign an instrument called the kalimba, which mounts on the surface of the guitar. Compositions inspired by the pairing of the two instruments can be heard in Trevor’s Candyrat Records debut Entelechy.
