Thanks to All
Thanks to everyone who came out to see the fantastic Cliff Eberhardt and always wonderful Scott Heffernan. The night was wonderful with great music and laughter.  Tweed Meyer was, once again, a point of joy as she danced while her fingers caught the essence of the evening.

Claude Bourbon, Thursday, June 2
Born in France, Claude Bourbon grew up in Switzerland where he was classically trained as a guitarist. He has crafted an unbelievable fusion of classical; jazz; ethereal Eastern influences; Spanish and Latin Elements with strains of Western folk and Blues. Bourbons’ finger picking style was developed as he’s studied and performed around the world.

Claude Bourbon “Sitting On The Cliff”

Now based in England, Bourbon is a formidable performer inspired by music and song from around the globe. He weaves these sounds into songs and melodies that defy label, delivered with his unique voice.  Bourbon incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such amazing speed and precision, his fingers often melt into a blur.

It’s been said: Suggesting Claud’s roots are blues is like saying Leonardo da Vinci was just a painter.

Please join us, Thursday, June 2, for this unbelievable opportunity to see a phenomenal guitarist and fantastic singer. Call 253-778-6559 or email info@watermarkwriters.com
