 The Incomparable

Pierre Bensusan

 

The revered French, fingerstyleist released his first album in 1975, and since then has carved a reputation as one of the most  innovative guitarists there is, practically unrivaled by any acoustic (or maybe even electric) player.  Bensusan is such a fingerstyle guitar legend that the late & great Michael Hedges  named a song for him.

Guitar Workshop will start at 3pm the same day as the show. Not to be missed!

Chapman Stick Artist   

Glenn Poorman

Barone is on the forefront of the new age of acoustic guitar. His musical style was inspired by the late legendary American guitarist Michael Hedges. Barone, was also a student of Pino Forastiere in Rome and is a member of the Italian trio of guitarists,

Guitar Republic.

His compositions range from intimate melodies to rhythmical patterns interposed with percussive taps & slaps on the guitar body mixed in

with repeating electronic loops.
