Bensusan’s 40th anniversary
Award winning French-Algerian guitarist Pierre Bensusan is celebrating 40 years on the road with a celebratory tour in partnership with Lowden Guitars. It kicks off at Jersey Arts Centre on Monday 9th June and travels through the South and Midlands before heading into Scotland, Northern and Southern Ireland, where Pierre will perform at then ational Concert Hall in Dublin on 26th June. Performing upwards of 3,000 concerts over a 40-year career, Pierre is recognised universally as the foremost contemporary exponent of DAD GAD guitar tuning; the successor to the pioneering work of the late D avey Graham; and the catalyst to a whole new world of acoustic guitar styles through the likes of the great Michael Hedges. Hedges dedicated and named his track Bensusan to Pierre, on the ground breaking acoustic album A rial Boundaries. In 2008 Pierre won Guitar Player Magazine ‘Readers Choice’ award, for Best World Music Guitar Player. Visit www.pierrebensusan.com/tour for a full list of dates.
