BRATTLEBORO -- Twilight Music presents French-Algerian acoustic guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery, 139 Main St., on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7:30 p.m.

If World Music is music that pays tribute to the spirit of a collection of human beings through distinct rhythms, traditional instruments and harmonic colors, Bensusan can be recognized as one of the most eloquent and diverse world musicians of our time. At 17, Bensusan signed his first recording contract, and one year later his first album, "Pres de Paris," won the Grand Prix du Disque upon his debut at the Montreux Festival in Switzerland. Bensusan was voted Best World Music Guitar Player in 2008 by Guitar Player Magazine Readers Choice. His playing defies classification -- world, classical, jazz, traditional, folk and more.

Tickets are $20 general, $18 for students and seniors. For reservations and information, call 802-254-9276.
