Shot of Bourbon 

French guitarist highlights Folk Club’s show.

2006_5-2_17-1-25-751.jpg

Claude Bourbon, French fingerstyle guitarist/singer who now makes his home in Portsmouth, England, is regarded as among the best in the world in fusing classical and jazz guitar and blending it with ethereal Eastern influences, Spanish and Western folk. Bourbon brings his Leo Kottke-like style to the Little Rock Folk Club’s show at Thomson Hall in the Unitarian Universalist Church on Saturday, May 6.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m., and admission at the door is $10 for adults and $5 for students, with children under 12 admitted at no charge with a paying adult.

Bourbon claims a love of the Delta blues, as well as other genres from around the world, and he has a singing and playing style that recalls Leon Redbone as well as Kottke. His MySpace site, www.myspace.com/claudebourbon, offers a good example of his performance style. Bourbon has recorded six CDs, and he regularly amazes critics and guitar-playing fans in more than 100 shows a year when he plucks, picks and strums using both hands with great speed and precision.

UUCLR is at 1818 Reservoir Road.

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.
  • You want tort reform? Try this.

    The nursing home industry and the chamber of commerce finally defeated the trial lawyers in the 2017 legislature. The Republican-dominated body approved a constitutional amendment for voters in 2018 that they'll depict as close to motherhood in goodness.
  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
  • Raw feelings in the Arkansas Justice Building over workload, pay

    Strained relations between the Arkansas Supreme Court and the Arkansas Court of Appeals broke into public view this week. I expect more to come.
