Guitar Center 2012 “Battle of the Blues” winner
Boscoe France’s authentic musical style is an awe-inspiring alchemy of blues, rock and little bit of down-home soul. In what is sure to be an unforgettable performance, Boscoe’s indescribable slide guitar skills are well matched with his “rock your socks off” style of Blues. Yes…. literally…. this Kentucky firebrand stands barefoot on stage, playing with the skill and talent of a master musician fused with the intensity of a bare knuckled brawler.
Since picking up his Uncle Duke’s guitar at the age of three, Boscoe has forged a truly unique sound. In his years of experience, he has been blessed to share the stage and open for remarkable musicians such as: BB King, Paul Reed Smith, Sonny Landreth, Keb Mo, Emil Werstler, Johnny Neel, and Jimmy Wallace, to name a few. Boscoe currently performs at music festivals and PRS guitar clinics across the country. His joys are playing music, traveling to festivals with his family, and living the good life in Western Kentucky.
2015 Shoeless Blues: The Journey of Boscoe France appeared nationally on PBS and is still airing around the country. www.boscoefrance.com

“I recently had the pleasure of producing Lil Red & The Rooster’s Soul Burnin’ album and was so impressed with Pascal Fouquet’s excellent guitar playing. He’s one of the best European blues guitar players I’ve heard.” Dave Specter
