Claude Bourbon
(progressive blues)

“A breathtaking acoustic fusion of blues, jazz, classical and Spanish guitar from a stunning guitar virtuoso…” Altadena News, USA”

Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories.

Claude’s inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso and for the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is ’Claude’.

Some of this guitarists’ influences allow us a fascinating insight into this remarkable musician; Paco De Lucia: Deep Purple’s Richie Blackmore; Joaquin Rodrigo; JJ Cale; JS Bach….

Claude has played countless venues, including Glastonbury Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, Colne Great British & Blues Festival, Rock O'Z Arene, Avenches, Switzerland, among others. He has shared the stage in Europe and the USA with countless musicians, Calvin Russel, Charlie Morgan (Elton John, Gary Moore), Jan Akkerman (Focus), Steve Grossman (Miles Davis), Herbie Armstrong ( Van Morisson), Jose barrense Dias and many more.

Special guest John Agacki

John Agacki began playing guitar at an early age. Though largely self-taught, he later studied with Irish folk singer and guitarist, John Doyle. In his youth he began writing pieces for solo guitar and piano, but later developed his skill as a songwriter. His distinctive music is written in a blend of styles from folk to bluegrass and semi-classical to light rock. However, it is John's love for Irish folk song that has had a strong lyrical influence on his musical lines. His music has been featured on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion," Wisconsin Public Radio's "Simply Folk," The Guthrie Theater of Minneapolis, as well as radio and television.
