“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.
