    Over 20 years into making music, Blake celebrates his unusual song forms, which land between spoken word, folk song, rock song, and theatrical installation, with the title of his new double album, Recitative. Recitative, also known by its Italian name “recitativo,” is a style of delivery in which a singer is allowed to adopt the rhythms of ordinary speech—a style that permeates Blake’s music over the folk- and blues-inspired rock laid down by his backing band.

    The Letters—Connor Kennedy on guitar, Lee Falco on drums, Brandon Morrison on bass, and Will Bryant on piano—represent the next generation of the “Hudson Valley sound” started by Bob Dylan and The Band. The list of where they’ve played is tall and long, from Levon’s Barn to Carnegie Hall. With the support of The Letters, Blake is able to paint with broader strokes and more vivid colors; the band is a Ferrari in idle waiting to roar between the narratives and vignettes.

    Blake’s performances have been described as “powerful” and “intense,” like “Jack Kerouac, Ernest Hemingway, and a proton bomb all combined into one”; his storytelling has been called “one of the best forms of concert entertainment ever experienced.” With tunes that investigate everything from couples and single women, to US drone attacks, to Saturday nights, to the rock and roll dream, Robt Sarazin Blake & The Letters draw from folk, Americana, and rock roots to create a sound that’s all their own.

    On Sunday May 7, Montpelier Vermont fans are excited to welcome back France’s acoustic guitar master Pierre Bensusan in concert at the Unitarian – as part of his 40 date tour of the USA and Canada! Winner of the Independent Music Award, in the Live Performance Album category for his latest triple live album “Encore” (2014), “Rose d’Or” of the Montreux Festival for his first album, “Près de Paris” (Switzerland, 1976), “Best World Music Guitar Player ” by the readers of Guitar Player Magazine (USA, 2008), Bensusan is recognized as one of the premier musicians of our time.

    Described by the L.A. Times as “one of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans on the world music scene today”, his name became synonymous with contemporary acoustic guitar genius. He has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. And yet, Bensusan is more than what any musician or music lover expects from a guitarist. He is a composer as well as a bilingual and a brave improvisational vocalist, melding whistles and resonant low notes with something like his own scat technique.

    Born in Oran, French-Algeria, in 1957, when France was decolonizing its Empire, Pierre Bensusan’s family moved to Paris when he was 4. He began formal studies on piano at the age of 7 and at 11 taught himself guitar. Influenced in those early days by the folk revival blooming in Britain, France and North America, Bensusan began first to explore his own diverse musical heritage and then moved to the horizons beyond.

    There is a sense of something both playful and serious in his work, an unparalleled sense of freedom in his compositions and his improvisations. His “manner” of playing defies classification – crossing world, classical, jazz, traditional, folk and more. None can be isolated as simply “Brazilian”, “Arabic” or “French”; rather, they represent our world in its current state, a world sharing itself, fusing cultures together in ways we have never experienced. A great ambassador of peace. Not to be missed!
