DAVID BOWIE & PINK FLOYD Acoustic Tribute w/ FRANCOIS WISS
Classically trained French guitarist Francois brings his unique interpretation of the music of Pink Floyd and David Bowie to B.B. King's. This acoustic set is a great way to experience the incredible songcraft of the British experimental pop masters, whose music occasionally gets overshadowed by their lush production values and larger-than-life stadium shows. Wiss studied music at the Conservatoire in Paris, and was mentored on the nylon strings by notable guitar masters including Pierre Culaz, Marc Benguigui, Belaid Ait Abdallah, Terry Fleming and Mathias Berchadsky. Rock's spectacular innovator David Bowie left us all too soon, but we can still cherish his music. Classically trained French guitarist Francois Wiss shows the depth and versatility of jams such as "Space Oddity," "Ziggy Stardust" and more with a stripped-down acoustic performance of some of Bowie's greatest hits. Accompanying his soulful singing with dexterous fingerpicking, Wiss' renditions will help you appreciate the master's songcraft in a whole new light.
