9:00 – 10:30 pm – Bert Lams and Tom Griesgraber, at Kentucky Coffeetree Cafe, 235 W Broadway St, Frankfort

Join Bert Lams, of the California Guitar Trio, and Tom Griesgraber, master of the rare chapman stick, at the Kentucky Coffeetree Cafe.

The Lexington Harold commented on the talents of Bert and Tom prior to their last performance at the Cafe several years ago:
“Local audiences might know Bert Lams as one-third of the acclaimed California Guitar Trio. A classically trained, Belgium-born player, he long ago mastered the fine art of genre-jumping. He showcased his classical prowess with a superlative solo album of Bach Preludes (Nascent), but Lams has stylistically leap-frogged with the CGT from classical to surf to accomplished original compositions to prog-rock covers.

Tom Griesgraber is versed on the versatile electric gizmo known as the Chapman stick, an instrument that creates everything from bass-like tones to orchestral ambience through taps on its strings.”

With the release of Unnamed Lands, guitarist Bert Lams and Chapman Stick player Tom Griesgraber celebrate the completion of one of the most inspired projects either musician has ever been a part of. Fourteen original instrumental tracks tie together with artwork and text to tell the adventures of a North American wagon train journey through one traveler’s personal experiences circa 1840.

“What started as a simple idea to make an album together, changed course dramatically,” says Lams. “As we were working together, the original pieces seemed to tie in with a story, or a concept, and a theme emerged: Prairie Travelers in the 1800’s, making their way west, looking for better fortunes.’’ “The more time we spent writing, the more the project took on a life of its own,” continues Griesgraber, “The story presented itself as if it was just meant to be there.”

We will be using drawing skills, imagination and inspiration from the nature and sculptures available at the park. You may also come with sketches or ideas for your design in mind, but that is not necessary.

Our second class “meeting” will be during the Fall Arts Festival at JSP on Sunday, Sep. 11. You may arrive with your mold at any time during the event (11am-6pm) to get your mold poured by the crew from Sculpture Trails who run the metal casting event at JSP. You will learn from them about the pouring procedure and finishing your aluminum sculpture, which you will get to take home that day. This is not a formally scheduled “class” as you may come and go as you like, stay as long as you like, you could even create another sand mold if you want to ($30 each the day of the event).
