Welcome

Updated: 14 April 2021

Trevor Hanson is a guitarist from the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. I mostly play seven-string guitars, both nylon- and steel-string.

As we emerge from  the lost year of 2020, I am starting to resume live performances on the Olympic Peninsula

My solo performances draw on an eclectic mix of material, ranging across classical, jazz, folk, and other traditions. Most notably, as of April 2021 I'm again playing at Alchemy Bistro & Wine Bar in Port Townsend -- a regular Monday night event since 2011. Starting in 2021, I'm now also playing the first Friday each month at Alchemy. In May 2021, Ajax Café is also resuming live music, where I will appear on the fourth Friday each month.

Other venues and events are yet to be worked out as we reemerge from the pandemic. I also look forward to resuming singing, and particularly to Irish pub songs -- ballads, sea shanties, and beer-drinking songs -- as a soloist and with others.

I will also look forward to resuming work with ensembles, playing in genres that span big-band dance music, mainstream jazz, gypsy swing, folk music, Irish pub songs, and some cross-genre material that defies description. You will again find me playing in a duo -- joining a saxophone, trombone, keyboard, bass, or another guitar -- or as a sideman in a larger group. None of us have any idea when such things will again be possible.

I have not resumed teaching, but this also seems likely to resume soon, either at your home or at Crossroads Music in Port Townsend.
