Mobius Trio is an ensemble of three classically trained guitarists, Matthew Holmes-Linder, Robert Nance, and Mason Fish. The ensemble formed with the explicit intent to perform and promote contemporary music, so all of  the repertoire that Mobius plays has either been written (or, in rare cases, arranged) for them. For this reason, every addition to the trio’s repertoire is also a collaboration with a composer. This constant collaborative spirit is, in many ways, the primary function the ensemble.
