C3 is a Seattle trio that plays adventurous, mostly-improvised songs and songscapes. Leader Steve Ball is best known for his decades of work with Robert Fripp & the League of Crafty Guitarists, a group who pioneered new forms of both composed and improvised music for guitar ensembles. Steve also founded the Seattle Guitar Circle in 1993. Their spin-off project, Tuning the Air, is now in its 11th season. C3 also features guitarists Ivan Lee and Paul O’Rear. They are joined for this show by Sockethead composer/keyboardist Nathan Grigg, Emma Durand (sweet & sour songs), Joel Palmer (group loops), and David LaVallee (group loops).
