John Oates is one-half of the best-selling duo of all time, Hall & Oates, as well as an accomplished solo artist with seven albums of his own. Guthrie Trapp is one of Nashville’s preeminent guitar talents who brings a brilliant mix of musical influences to the stage.

“These will be fantastic nights of music and stories,” Trapp said of his performances with Oates. “John and I have a blast on and off the stage and we look forward to sharing this energy with you all!”
Trapp is a versatile musician who crosses many genres with ease, taste and authenticity. For several years, he worked with revered country artist Patty Loveless, appearing on two studio albums with her including the Grammy-winning “Mountain Soul 2.” Onstage or in the studio, he’s supported the world’s most talented and best-selling artists including Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Vince Gill, Travis Tritt, Dolly Parton, Sam Bush, Lyle Lovett and many others.
