Wooden Hall Concerts will present Claude Bourbon at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 3, at Alhecama Theatre, 914 Santa Barbara St.

Bourbon weaves his songs through the audience as if he's on a journey through life, taking in flavors of Europe and beyond, fusing genres of acoustic guitar music into a master-class stage performance. 

Bourbon grew up in Switzerland, where he was classically trained. He has performed and studied worldwide.

Bourbon's performances craft a combination of classical and jazz with ethereal Eastern influences, Spanish and Latin elements, and strains of western folk and Delta Blues.

The Santa Barbara Acoustic Music Association is totally nonprofit and volunteer. It introduces the Wooden Hall Concerts, which host guitar players who are not commonly seen in such an intimate setting. All proceeds go to the artists and the Trust for Historic Preservation to use the venue.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
