Born in France, classically trained in Switzerland and now based in the U.K, this unique finger-picking guitar master travels the world with his trusty Gibson J-45, offering up a compelling acoustic fusion of blues, jazz, folk, classical, Spanish/Latin, Middle Eastern and even Russian guitar stylings, accentuated by his own soulful vocals. From his beautiful rendition of Gershwin’s ‘Summertime’ to his atmospheric classical openings which fuse into a whole continent of cultural roots and influences, Claude Bourbon offers a sensory experience that should not be missed. www.claudebourbon.org.
…”This accomplished artist offers tender, compelling performance through highly developed precision. His sound instantly creates ambience- from haunting Spanish moods to lyrical, romantic jazz. Claude Bourbon provides both a rich evening of music for lovers, and a real treat for music lovers..”, BBC (U.K.)
