The Horizons Trio
The Horizon Trio is a collaborative project featuring three acclaimed performers/educators: guitarist Steven Kirby, bassist Ed Lucie and drummer Mike Connors. From melodic ballads to burning uptempo excursions, highly arranged compositions to free improvisation, this is a versatile and adventurous trio with a penchant for melodicism and lyrical expression.
Steven Kirby is a professor at Berklee College of Music and has released two critically acclaimed CDs as a leader on Challenge Records: “North Light” and “Point Of Balance.”
