Claude Bourbon, Guitarist from England, performs at the Old Firehouse
September 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Claude Bourbon is a French-born guitarist who grew up in Switzerland where for a time he was classically trained, but he soon felt the need to explore the guitar without the limitations of written music and delved headlong into folk, blues, jazz and rock music. Now based in England, he has become a world-renowned player, highly acclaimed for his finger-picking style—plucking, picking and strumming at such speed that his fingers seem to appear just as a blur. His music utilizes strains of folk, western, jazz and blues through such melodic delights as the traditional English Dance, the hypnotic Rodrigo, and vocals that display his slightly gruff, worldly voice. Come hear him open the season at the Firehouse on September 14 at 7:30.
All the concerts start at 7:30; doors open at 7:00. The Old Firehouse is at Vermont 140 and Mountain View Road in downtown Tinmouth. Donation of $10 to $15 goes 90% to the musicians; the balance pays the town for the hall. Coffee, tea, and locally made treats are available, provided by local groups. Your donations will support their activities.
