Flyin’ Fingers

Pierre Bensusan returns to Trumansburg to showcase his dazzling guitar style. Described by the L.A. Times as "one of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans in the world music scene today," Bensusan’s name “became synonymous with contemporary acoustic guitar genius, long before the terms New Age, New Acoustic Music or World Music were invented. He has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. And yet, Bensusan is more than what any musician or music lover expects from a guitarist. He is a composer as well as a bilingual and a brave improvisational vocalist, melding whistles and resonant low notes with something like his own scat technique.” Find out more here.
