The “Mozart of Guitar” is back in the UK and he’s coming to Milngavie Folk Club this Saturday, June 6.

Over the past 40 years, finger style acoustic guitar virtuoso Pierre Bensusan has taken his unique blend of world, Celtic, jazz and folk inspired music to all corners of the globe.

Winner of the 2014 Independent Music Award in the Live Performance Album category for his triple live album “Encore”, Pierre is recognised as one of the great guitar players of the 21st century.

Described as a ‘genius’ by Jon Gomm and Melody Maker, immortalised by the tune ‘Bensusan’ written in tribute by the late Michael Hedges, and referenced as an important inspiration to many other great musicians, Pierre’s music transcends genre and time. Tickets £12 from Haydock Music, Stewart Street or Art Forum, Station Road, Milngavie.
