Internationally known guitarist to perform in Coyle

COYLE — Guitarist Claude Bourbon will perform Middle Eastern and Spanish blues at Concerts in the Woods at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

The concert will be at the Laurel B. Johnson Community Center, 923 Hazel Point Road. Admission will be by donation. Complimentary cookies and coffee will be served at intermission.

“Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories, said series organizer Norm Johnson.

Bourbon is especially known for his finger-picking, described by one reveiwer as sounding like two guitars playing.

Born in France in the early ’60s, Bourbon grew up in Switzerland, where he was classically trained.

Now based in the UK, he has performed and studied all over the world and has crafted a fusion of classical and jazz, with Eastern influences, Spanish and Latin elements with strains of Western folk.
