José Peixoto (guitar), Carlos Barretto (double bass) and Bernando Couto (Portuguese guitar) are the members of the Lisbon String Trio. The combination of the three artists’ identity, as well as the jazz and fado that they bring from Lisbon, takes shape against the backdrop of the Alentejo landscape. A concert to enjoy in our garden.
