Claude Bourbon

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

Claude Bourbon, who lives in Portsmouth, England, studied classical guitar for many years in Switzerland.

His performance at Fountain General Store last year was “amazing and mesmerizing,” said Albright. “He’s billed as a blues musician, but his show is much more than blues. Hardly anyone can believe that the live tape we made of his show wasn’t over-dubbed, that it could possibly have been made live. He’s that good, that fast and articulate.”

Bourbon has released six critically acclaimed CDs, including Merci, recorded live in Brussels in 2005; The Fifth, a studio CD released earlier in 2005; and Stop Breaking Down, his most heavily blues-inflected recording, in 2002.
