Biography: Music Of The Americas is a guitar-led jazz quartet that takes its inspiration from the close harmony sounds of the legendary George Shearing, as well as travelling south of the border to pay tribute to Brazilian samba and bossa nova.

Trefor Owen, originally from Anglesey, has toured the UK with such guitar greats as the USA’s Mundell Lowe and Ireland’s Louis Stewart, and performed extensively in the USA, appearing in San Francisco and LA, at New York’s Classic American Guitar Show, and the prestigious Jazz Cafe at the famous Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC.

Completing the quartet are Andy Hulme (guitar), Ed Harrison (double bass) and Hugh Lawrence (Latin percussion).
