Claude Bourbon

Apr 28

French-born master fingerstyle guitarist Claude Bourbon hails from Britain, but finds himself traveling the globe strapped to his trusty Gibson J-45 acoustic dreadnaught.
Whether he’s playing a straight blues, thumping out some heartbeat R&B, or his own cauldron of styles that may include Flamenco, American roots music, British Isle stylings, coupled with nuances of New Orleans jazz, Bourbon transitions between them all with an intactness, and an easy and oftentimes syncopated style.

His guitar style is fluid without a sense of tension, yet drives us to musical destinations that are at once comfortable, yet hip and off the beaten track of radio standards. He has creative flair for the original, even when he covers songs that are well-known, like “St. James Infirmary Blues” or “Crossroads”.
