When: Thu., Aug. 31, 8-10 p.m. 2017

On Thurs, Aug 31, The Ark proudly welcomes back French North African guitar virtuoso Pierre Bensusan, whose flashy, intense fingerpicking style and music is a sonorous instrumental blend of several idioms--jazz, bluegrass, Celtic, French folk, South American--woven around his wordless vocal stylings. The winner of the Grand Prix du Disque at age 17, he has released a series of albums that have invoked comparisons to Doc Watson, Michael Hedges, and John Renbourn. 8 p.m., Tickets $20 in advance at the Michigan Union Ticket Office &, and (if available) at the door. 761-1451

Price: $20 - $27
