VETERAN acoustic guitarist Pierre Bensusan was once labelled a true genius, and you can judge for yourself when he comes to town.
The highly regarded acoustic guitarist and composer, with 35 years on the road, has not led Pierre to conform to so-called popular culture.
The French-Algerian guitarist’s music was described by the UK’s Melody Maker as having “the easy inevitability of true genius” – a label with which legions of passionate fans are only too quick to concur.
In an era of music which too often praises the superficial, listening to Pierre’s effortless playing is like a revelation.
He took up the piano at the age of seven and, at the age of eleven, began to teach himself guitar
Genres ranges form Celtic, folk, world music to new age or Chamber jazz.
He describes himself as a true musical storyteller, aiming to inspire with every note.

Pierre will be at the New Street venue on Thursday, June 23. Tickets are available from 01484 480 252.
