CLAUDE BOURBON

Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories.   There is an almost endless amalgam of different influences in Claude’s playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearics to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta.  His Spanish medieval blues can evolve into Gypsy and Eastern European, with a splash of Delta Blues and more. A top master of his craft and never appearing to be rushed, he has impeccable timing and makes things that one can only marvel at seem simple.  French, but now based in the UK, some of Claude’s influences allow us a fascinating insight into this remarkable musician — Paco De Lucia,  Richie Blackmore, JJ Cale,  JS Bach and others. “A breathtaking acoustic fusion of blues, jazz, folk, classical and Spanish guitar from a stunning guitar virtuoso.”  (Altadena News, USA)  SATURDAY
