Bourbon is a French-born guitarist who grew up in Switzerland where he studied classical guitar and then went on to craft his own unbelievable fusion of classical and jazz, with ethereal Eastern influences, Spanish and Latin elements and strains of Western folk.
His inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur.
As one person said after the concert last year, “His fingerpicking is exquisite and if I closed my eyes I could clearly hear two guitars playing. His forte is obviously his wonderful guitar work, but he does occasionally burst into song and what you then get is something between Bob Dylan and Cat Stevens, combined with a French accent. C’est magnifique.”
Now based in the United Kingdom, Bourbon is on a North American tour promoting his new CD.
He had such a good time playing the Marshall Grange last year that he immediately booked this concert at what is now one of his favorite venues.
This very special concert not to be missed.
