Guitar virtuoso Scott Holt first came to national prominence as part of various high energy bands led by legendary Chicago blues guitarist and singer Buddy Guy. Inspired by the rich musical legacy of the American south, he’s been a bearer of the Blues torch for his entire career.

He was just 23 when Guy took him under his wing and was on the road and in the recording studio for a decade, earning his post-graduate education with one of the true blues guitar masters.

In addition to his tenure with Buddy Guy, Holt’s solo records have established him not only as a six-string virtuoso but also as a penetrating and soulful storyteller. Through the countless hours and miles on the road, Scott has developed a reputation as one of the most exciting live acts in the world.

Scott has appeared on The Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien, Austin City Limits, The Jon Stewart Show, Good Morning America and many more.

Daniel Volovets is a guitarist, composer, arranger, and instructor specializing in classical, flamenco, Latin American, and jazz music. Although born in the United States, his music is informed first and foremost by his Russian heritage. He was raised in a household of almost constantly reverberating musical notes — passionate and melancholy melodies of Russian and Ukrainian folklore, gently swaying Brazilian rhythms intermingled with the nearly-untranslatable sentiment of saudade, fiery strumming of flamenco masters, soulful and oft mournful fado, and wistful yet playful chansons of French bards, just to name a few.

Daniel began his studies at the age of 7 with the renowned Russian classical guitarist Anatoly Shapiro and subsequently also studied with classical/flamenco guitarist Tony Hauser and the legendary flamenco guitarist “El Payo” Humberto Wilkes. Daniel is a prolific performer, giving concerts regularly throughout the Twin Cities at a wide range of venues

Daniel graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a B.S. in Neuroscience and the University of Minnesota Medical School with an M.D. He aspires to balance careers in medicine and music.

Since 1991 The California Guitar Trio has enthralled listeners with a singular sound that fearlessly crisscrosses genres. The trio’s questing spirit drives it to explore the intersections between rock, jazz, classical, and world music. It even throws in the occasional surf or spaghetti Western tune for good measure.

Comprised of Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya and Paul Richards, the group has served as the soundtrack for Olympics coverage, and programs on CNN, CBS, NBC, and ESPN. In addition to dazzling musicianship and interplay, The California Guitar Trio’s shows are full of captivating stories and humor.

The trio’s music showcases beautiful lush originals and innovative cover arrangements of Beatles, Beach Boys and expansive takes on Bach, Beethoven, Arvo Pärt, and Schubert. They have explored kinetic rock territory in collaboration with bassist Tony Levin and drummer Pat Mastelotto and timeless material by artists such as Mike Oldfield, Penguin Café Orchestra, Pink Floyd, and Queen.

All three felt the call to push themselves to the limit by enrolling in Robert Fripp’s challenging Guitar Craft courses, where they first met in 1987. They went on to tour together as part of Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists, before forming the California Guitar Trio in Los Angeles four years later.


Sam Breckenridge is an accomplished Twin Cities finger-style acoustic guitarist and composer. With over 16 years of live stage experience as a Twin Cities musician, he brings an innovative and soulful style that has earned him performances at Minnesota’s Guitar Concert Series at Sundin Hall, features in the “Minnesota Guitarist” Magazine, two videos featured on City Pages “Top 10 Must See Music Videos,” two releases on the world renowned Candyrat Records label, and gear endorsements with K&K Pickups and Tim Reede Custom Guitars.

“Bundy has made his reputation as a next generation solo guitarist of serious repute.”

– Boulder Weekly

Internationally-acclaimed guitar virtuoso Trace Bundy must be seen, not just heard. His music is poetry in motion, using harmonics, looping, multiple capos, and his unique banter and stage presence to deliver an unforgettable live concert experience. Listening to his intricate arrangements is one thing, but seeing the fan-dubbed “Acoustic Ninja” play live confounds even the most accomplished music lovers as to how one person can do all that with just two hands and ten fingers.
