Music Programme 2019

A musician and instrumentalist of high calibre, Shaun Ferguson hails from New Brunswick in north-eastern Canada and has explored a variety of music genres in the past twenty years. An autodidact, he has a keen ear for the essential in music, and a distinctive sense of a personal expression. As a guitarist and composer he is constantly on the lookout for new directions, often projects combining his music with poetry, visuals and dance. Famous for his sublime guitar playing, he also succeeds in transferring his talents to other instruments: cello, bass and percussion. His albums include Ascensions in 2011 and Résilience in 2017. A music critic wrote in the Canadian daily L´Étoile of Shaun Ferguson: “With his acoustic guitar, Shaun Ferguson reveals that breathing and playing are identical for him, and that his favoured instrument has the power to imbue our minds and our ears with the most beautiful music in the world.” His only Danish festival concert in 2019.
