CBS Guitar Trio
C.B.S. Guitar Trio
(Chip, Brian, & Sean)
From VT to New Orleans to NYC - Three smokin' guitarists celebrate 25 years of friendship with blues, folk, and jazz in this one-night-only NYC appearance.
Guitar-driven roots music with strong elements of blues, folk, and jazz. Original music ranging from funny to poignant to classic storytelling, combined with familiar hits from artist like Mose Allison and Stevie Wonder.
25 years ago, Chip Wilson, Brian Camelio, and Sean Harkness were friends in Burlington, VT. They have performed, composed, and recorded music together in different combinations for years. First Brian moved to Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, then to NYC, developing his career as a Jazz guitarist. Then Sean moved to New York City. Then Chip moved to New Orleans, where his heart had been for years already.
Since then all three guitarists have developed brilliant careers:
Chip has released 9 CDs full of gorgeous original songs and New Orleans classics, plays 6-10 gigs a week in New Orleans for the past 20 years both solo and with bayou royalty. A regular at the Umbria Jazz Festival as a solo act, Chip has made frequent appearances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. In 2012, Chip was nominated as Best Singer-Songwriter in Offbeat, and his 2010 release Side By Side was named as a Top 9 CD in the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
In addition to being a top notch guitarist, Brian single-handedly started the fan-funding revolution with his brainchild ArtistShare. 6 Grammys and 18 nominations later, they were also the first to get a Grammy for a CD that was not available in retail stores, internet only. Also an award winning producer, Brian has performed with many great Jazz artists including a recent engagement with guitar legend Jim Hall at the Cotton Club, Tokyo.
Sean is an accompanist to a dizzying list of entertainers and productions, and is also a solo Artist who's work appears on Windham Hill [Sony/RCA/BMG], Rinken Records in Japan, and ODEG Jazz in Toronto.
