French-Algerian acoustic guitar virtuoso, vocalist and composer Pierre Bensusan returns to North America to play nearly 100 shows, presenting the music of his new album Azwan, as well as his new book and brand new Lowden Guitar Artist Model. He opens his tour with two shows in Wilmington and is collaborating with Forward Motion Dance Company and choreographer Tracey Varga to bring the art of dance together with his unique and inspired sound. Pierre Bensusan has taken his unique sound to all corners of the globe. He is a composer as well as a bilingual and original and improvisational vocalist, with his own scat technique. Winner of the Independent Music Awards for his triple live album Encore, voted Best World Music guitarist by Guitar Player Magazine reader’s Poll, and winner of the Rose d’Or at the Montreux Festival for his debut album, Pierre is recognized as one of the greatest guitar players of the 21st century. Pierre's name became synonymous with contemporary acoustic guitar genius. He has created a style of playing with the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. His manner of playing defies classification - crossing world, classical, jazz, traditional, folk, pop and more - all represent Pierre’s genuine vocabulary and the best part of our world in its current state, a world sharing itself. These special tour-opening performances with guests Forward Motion Dance Company are not to be missed! Ticket price is $21 in advance - $25 day of show and are available now.
