Claude Bourbon

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

Claude Bourbon  is a master guitarist who is making Fountain a stop on his U.S. tour for the third consecutive year. Born in France, musically educated in Switzerland, and residing in England, Bourbon plays what he calls “medieval blues,” an original fusion of jazz and blues, classical, and flamenco. His version of “Bolero,” recorded at RAF by Cliff Nelson, is a popular hit on YouTube.

“Claude’s fingerpicking is the fastest and finest we’ve ever seen in Fountain,” said Albright. “It often seems like he’s over-ddubbing or there’s a secret guitarist hidden behind him somewhere, it’s so fast and complex, yet so really smooth.”
