“How the guitar would want to sound if it could play itself”...

Pierre Bensusan is back in the UK & Ireland. Over the past 46 years, acoustic guitar virtuoso and vocalist Pierre Bensusan has taken his unique sound to all corners of the globe. Winner of the 2014 Independent Music Award in the Live Performance Album category for his triple live album "Encore", voted Best World Music guitarist by Guitar Player Magazine reader’s Poll, winner of the Grand Prix du Disque at the Montreux Festival for his debut album, “Près de Paris”, Pierre is recognized as one of the greatest guitar players of the 21st century. Described as a ‘genius’ by the likes of Jon Gomm and Melody Maker, immortalised by the tune ‘Bensusan’ written in tribute by the late Michael Hedges, and referenced as an important inspiration to many other great musicians, Pierre Bensusan is a one-of-a-kind artist whose music transcends genre and time, with an uninhibited sense of musical freedom and expression, a sense of something both playful and serious, otherworldly yet right here, right now. His "manner" of playing defies classification - crossing world, classical, jazz, traditional, folk, pop and more. None can be isolated as simply “World Music”, “Celtic”, "Arabic" or “French”; rather, they represent our world in its current state, a world sharing itself. A great ambassador of France and peace. Not to be missed!
