Discover the genius of acoustic guitarist Pierre Bensusan this June and July
Pierre Bensusan is a fine contender for the title greatest musician youve never heard. Over a 35 year career which has taken him to every corner of the globe, his unique style has developed on his own terms, never being diluted by the pressure to conform. His latest release Vividly, combines exquisite solo guitar pieces with an equal number of passionate vocal performances.

Bensusans music was described by the UKs Melody Maker as having the easy inevitability of true genius  a label with which legions of passionate fans are only too quick to concur. Indeed, Bensusan is the kind of artist who, like an initiation to a secretive society, many fans discover through a personal and reverent introduction from a friend or family member.

Despite his relative obscurity within mainstream music, Pierre is a highly regarded and influential musician. UK folk legend Davy Graham (sighted by most as the inventor of the DADGAD guitar tuning also employed by Bensusan) on meeting Pierre said Now that Pierre is here, I no longer need to play guitar! American guitar legend Michael Hedges wrote a piece titled Bensusan in dedication to his admiration of Pierres work.

This summer, dont miss the opportunity to initiate yourself into the Bensusan legacy.
