Pierre has built quite an international reputation as a fingerstyle virtuoso, starting in the streets of Paris and later sharing stages with the likes of George Winston, David Bromberg, Leo Kottke and Taj Mahal. For you guitar players out there, you may be interested to know that he tunes DADGAD–so don’t even try to figure out his chords looking at his hands. Pierre, these days, regularly tours the states and teaches guitar. He’s been at the arrows several times, and always draws a good crowd. Meet him at www.pierrebensusan.com, where you have the option of reading about him in English or Francais.
