Exploring the guitar’s full creative potential, Trevor Gordon Hall’s blending of sounds weave together textures into grand yet intimate and lyrical compositions.

KAHULUI – Blues Bear Hawaii announced that guitar virtuoso Trevor Gordon Hall is coming to Hawaii for his debut concerts in the islands.

He will perform on Wednesday, Sept. 5, in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s McCoy Theater at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $42 or $56; call 242-SHOW or visit www.MauiArts.org.

Hall is a powerful emerging voice, albeit without words to his music, showing that honest, heartfelt composition combined with technical virtuosity can provide artists with a wider reach than ever before.

With an exploding presence on streaming services like Spotify and YouTube, and a touring calendar that has taken him to 14 countries and counting, it’s safe to say that this is a new era for artists like Hall to engage listeners from all cultures, languages, genres and backgrounds.

Rated one of the top 30 guitarists in the world under 30 years of age by Acoustic Guitar magazine, Hall is an instrumentalist from Philadelphia whose style ranges from edgy driving rhythms to delicate melodic themes. Aside from being featured on NPR, NBC, PBS and countless international media outlets, Hall has performed in many historic places, including Carnegie Hall in New York City, Union Chapel in London, Music History Museum in Bologna, Adolfo Mejia Theater in Colombia and a brief performance on The Great Wall in China.

He has also had the opportunity to share the stage with some of the most trusted and legendary names in the music business, prompting high praise from John Mayer, Steve Miller, Graham Nash, Steve Hackett, Dar Williams, Will Ackerman, Pat Martino, Stanley Jordan, Phil Keaggy, Tommy Emmanuel, Andy McKee and more.

“Beautiful work! It is so refreshing to hear a player take a whole new approach to the instrument,” said Mayer.

“What a great performance,” Miller commented. “Magnificent!”
