Welcome

Trio Camino brings together the talents of  guitarists David Grimes, Gregory Newton and Michael Nigro to present thrilling performances of dynamic and colorful music. Their imaginative programs offer great variety and musical passion to engage and delight any audience.

Concert schedule updates 

Due to unforeseen events, we had to cancel the October tour in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  We hope it will be re-scheduled very soon.  In the meantime, we will have two performances in Tucson, AZ on December 15 and 16.

Looking ahead, we have confirmed a concert at the American Cathedral in Paris for next June 23, and we are booking our summer tour around that.

And we will be the feature artists at next fall's International Guitar Festival in Santiago, Chile.  It will be very good to go there again.

Glendale, Arizona 

We're eagerly looking forward to visiting Chuck Houlihan's exemplary guitar program at Glendale Community College.  In addition to teaching master classes, we'll share a concert program with the very fine guitar ensembles there.  Trio Camino will play the first half of the program and then join with the ensembles to present "To Fengari Ine Kokkino" by Manos Hatzidakis and "El Colesterol" by Fito Olivares, both in versions arranged for three soloists with guitar orchestra.  Both will be first performances, and the entire program will be great fun.

Summer 2017 

We're very excited to be touring in wonderful Greece this July.  We'll begin by being the featured artists at the Karditsa Guitar Festival at beautiful Lake Plastira and then move on to the Volos Summer Guitar Festival.  Afterward we'll play on the beguiling island of Kos.
