|The League of Crafty Guitarists is the performance-ensemble of Guitar Craft, a group which includes players from all over the world.
The group performs on acoustic steel string guitars tuned in the New Standard Tuning (NST), which extends the sonic range of the traditional guitar tuning.
Its repertoire is constantly evolving and is open to all styles. The music remains true to a common conceptual approach, and includes a rich variety of original compositions. A characteristic and outstanding part of the repertoire are improvised and/or written group compositions, known as Circulations.
The LCG was founded in 1986 under the direction of Robert Fripp and toured worldwide until 1991. During this first period of activity several albums were released: "Live 1", "Get Crafty", "Live 2-Live At Victoriaville Festival", "Show Of Hands" and "Live 3-Intergalactic Boogie Express".
The LCG returned to live performance in January 2002 under the direction of Hernan Nunez, and has been touring and recording in Europe and Latin America since then, the release of a live album featuring the highlights of these tours is now in process.
Robert Fripp Soundscapes & The LCG toured Italy, Spain, Portugal, Argentina and the US between June 2006 and July 2009.
