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.
