Acoustic guitarist, Claude Bourbon to play at Brandon Music on Sunday

Sunday, Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — Brandon Music presents Claude Bourbon, highly acclaimed acoustic guitar player, on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Born in France in the early 60’s, Bourbon who has a reputation as a formidable performer, grew up in Switzerland where he was classically trained. His playing is firmly rooted in classical Spanish guitar; however he stretches the genre with a vast array of influences, east and west, ancient and modern.

Bourbon has performed and studied all over the world; he has crafted an unbelievable fusion of classical and jazz, with ethereal Eastern influences, Spanish and Latin elements with strains of Western folk. Now based in the UK, some of Bourbon’s influences allow fascinating insight into this remarkable musician: Paco De Lucia, Deep Purple’s Richie Blackmore, Joaquin Rodrigo, J.J. Cale, Monty Python, J.S. Bach, and Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks.

The BBC says, “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.”

Tickets are $15. Venue is BYOB. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Rd., Brandon.
