Like virtually every other touring music performer in the world, French-born, UK-based guitarist Claude Bourbon’s spring/summer U.S. tour schedule features along list of dates “cancelled due to corona — to be rescheduled.” (By sad comparison, many of his fall dates in Europe, which the virus is under control, are still on as of now).
But the artist, who describes his music as “Medieval and Spanish blues … progressive blues,” and who incorporates blues, folk, jazz and classical music into his sound, “plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur,” IS performing a concert in northeast Ohio, in fact— two of them.
The Hudson Library & Historical Society will be presenting Bourdon in VIRTUAL concert twice — on Tuesday, July 28 @ 7pm and Sunday, August 2 @ 2pm. Among the pieces he’ll be playing are the traditional English song “Greensleeves,” Deep Purple’s “Soldiers of Fortune,” and some of his own original compostions.
The concert will debut on the library’s Facebook page on Tuesday, July 28, be repeated on Sunday, August and will be available for streaming on the library’s YouTube page after the Sunday performance.
