FREMONT – The Keene Memorial Library will host a unique guitar recital this Sunday, when they bring Claude Bourbon and his unique guitar playing style to the library at 2 pm. His music includes Blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern styles.
Claude’s style incorporates all five fingers 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’s an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear to watch him play.
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.
The program at Keene Memorial Library is free to the public and refreshments will follow.
