Pierre Bensusan - Pres de Paris (1974)

French folk. Pierre’s first recording at the age of 17. Près de Paris was awardedthe Grand Prix du Disque for Folk Music at the Montreux Festival in 1976. Very folk orientated with an already distinctive, mature guitar style and musicality. All of Pierre trademarks are here. A classic, historical work, paving the way for many guitarists - even today.Doc Watson’s favourite.
