Claude Bourbon.

Archant

Claude Bourbon will be performing at Awliscombe Church on Friday, February 15, at 7.30pm in a Villages in Action concert.

Claude was born in France in the early 1960s, and grew up in Switzerland, where he was classically trained.

This finger-picking guitarist 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.

The unique Monsieur Bourbon is a formidable performer. He may have his roots in the blues, but he is inspired by music and song from all around the world, taking these sounds and weaving them into a performance of blues, rock, jazz songs and melodies that defy a label, all delivered with a gravelly voice. Go and enjoy a magical evening of high-class entertainment.

Tickets from David Chippington 01404 43480 or online from WeGottickets.com. Adults £7, children £5.50, family £20. Refreshments available.
