Join us for an unforgettable evening with Pierre Bensusan, one of the world's great fingerstyle guitarists and composers. A veteran of 40 years of touring and over a dozen recordings, Pierre cut his teeth as a performer on the folk scene around 1974 in Paris and other cities in France when one of his idols, banjo great Bill Keith, offered him his first official paying gig ever touring Western Europe with his bluegrass band. The French-Algerian upstart, humbly launching a four decade career which would earn him worldwide renown as the "Mozart of Guitar," was hired to play mandolin. But when Keith heard his groundbreaking approach to the acoustic guitar, he decided to allow Bensusan a few key spotlights on that instrument.
The rest is musical history. Come experience this one of a kind guitar virtuoso and be enchanted.
