Pierre Bensusan

This French guitarist was actually born in Algeria and has long been fascinated with his North African roots as well as the Celtic folk traditions of western Europe. After making a name for himself as a folk musician in the late '70s, Bensusan began to incorporate jazz and classical elements into his music, creating a virtuosic, highly original style on the acoustic guitar. ~ Linda Kohanov, Rovi

not too sure what to make of a north african frog
I discovered PB back in the early 90's when I bought Pres de Paris. I knew right off from his name that he was from North Africa and was delighted because i am from there as well, and to know that another north african was interested in Celtic music was amazing to me, considering our roots. Later i bought Solilai and 2. Still love his music.
Tres bien! Je pense que il aves besoin d'alle dans Wichita (excuse mois por la Francais: Il y a trent (plus) ans jusque jai a' parle ....

I had the pleasure of meeting him when I was doing the sound for his solo concert in Portland Oregon in the early 80's... a very accomplished guitarist, singer, and interpreter of folk melodies, especially Irish fiddle tunes. In those days all folk musicians were studying the Celtic traditions.

never heard of him either. I am now an instant fan. Pandora also offered to me another Artist guitarist: Peppino D'agastino, also now his fan. Who knew? The French and Italians produce some quality stuff.

I love Bensusan. He just has a unique flavor. And I love to be sung to in French! It is gentle but also has a world music flavor that makes it spicey and unexpected.

I saw him perform in Rhode Island in 1999. His virtuosity is rivaled by humble, down-to-eart h demeanor!
Has a similar creative technique as Phil Keaggy.
