Claude Bourbon

Location: R.A. Fountain

from our promo for this concert


[Fountain, NC] Claude Bourbon returns to Fountain General Store tomorrow night for a concert of medieval blues.

Bourbon, who lives in Portsmouth, England, returns to Fountain for the first time in three years. “He’s built up a good following around here from his previous shows,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor. “We’re sorry it’s taken so long to get him back, but he’s really expanded his U.S. audience in recent years so it’s gotten harder and harder to get him scheduled down this way.”

Bourbon, who was born in France and learned classical guitar in Belgium, performs what he terms “medieval blues.” 

“It’s hard to believe sometimes that it’s just one person playing guitar,” added Albright. “He’s often playing melody, rhythm, bass and percussion all at one time.”
