Claude Bourbon to perform at EWC

Claude BourbonThe Eastern Wyoming Arts Council presents Claude Bourbon. This performance will take place on Sunday, June 1, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. in the Eastern Wyoming College Cafeteria in Torrington, Wyoming.
Born in France in the early 60’s, Claude Bourbon grew up in Switzerland, where he was classically trained for many years. This finger picking guitarist has performed and studied all over the world; he has crafted an unbelievable fusion of classical and jazz, with ethereal Eastern influences, Spanish and Latin elements with strains of Western folk.
The unique Monsieur Bourbon is a formidable performer. He may have his roots in the blues, but he is inspired by music and song from all around the world, taking these sounds and weaving them into a performance of blues, rock, jazz, songs and melodies that defy a label, all delivered with a gravelly voice.

Also featured local artist Marvie Tipsword will display a variety of her work for the public to enjoy before and after this performance.

Pre-concert tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for students. Tickets at the door will be $20 adults and $10 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the Community Education office or by calling 307.532.8213 or 307.532.8323.
