An Evening with Pierre Bensusan: Presenting Azwan w/ special guests The Charcuterie Duo
- This event has passed.
French-Algerian acoustic guitar virtuoso, vocalist and composer Pierre Bensusan, along with special guests The Charcuterie Duo (Jane Van Voorhis (cello), Steve Fout (guitar), take the stage at Natalie’s Grandview. Bensusan, surnamed “Mister DADGAD”, has taken his unique sound to all corners of the globe. Winner of the Independent Music Award for his triple live album “Encore”, voted Best World Music Guitarist by Guitar Player Magazine reader’s Poll, 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.
Bensusan drops “Azwan”, his 16th album, about our oneness and interconnectivity in the midst of a unifying global crisis, beautiful music resonating joyously, providing some respite from the tension of these times. Like good wine, the artist focus, distilled, and as always with such a big, huge heart. Happiness, melancholy, size and intimacy. ‘Azwan’ feels very dense, with melodic themes and ideas that develop in his own inimitable orchestral style. The mark of a great album when you know you have to listen to it over and over. A very beautiful and successful triumph, an amazing work of art, emotional, delicate, playful and moving. In short, music that touches people in a profound way.
The Charcuterie Duo will open the show just after 8 pm as patrons arrive to be seated, so please plan to arrive when doors open at 7:30 pm. Having worked together for years as session players on various recording projects, Jane and Steve formed a performing collaboration in 2020. Like most professional musicians, their schedule has been widely impacted by the pandemic and their performances to date have been centered around house concert videos and recordings, some of which are presented on several streaming platforms.
