His story ...

This blues man got his start playing classical guitar at the age of 11 on a farm in Normandy, France. Five years later when BB Kingʼs “Blues Is King” reached his ears, his focus changed to Blues, from there he became one of the most admired Blues guitarists in France. This extraordinary soloist integrates the Blues of the 40’s & 50’s with contemporary blues to create his own unique sound and style. In his 40+ year career, he has won several awards for best soloist. He’s shared the stage with many recognized Blues artists including Diunna Greenleaf, Sax Gordon, Sean Costello, Alex Schultz, Kid Ramos, Jimmy Morello, Andy J. Forest, Michael “Hawkeye” Herman, Rob Rio, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Candye Kane, Fernando Jones, Ricky Nye, Sean Carney, Steve Clayton, Shaun Booker. He tours regularly with Lil’ Red & The Rooster, Mike Sanchez, Steve Clayton & The French Blues Explosion. He remains ever true to his favorite guitar masters, T-Bone Walker, Tiny Grimes, & Charlie Christian. Listen Here!

“… the exceptionally graceful and virtuoso guitar of Pascal Fouquet takes you into a fourth
