Vita

Chris Lancry, guitar and blues-harp player born in 1951 in Marseille France, started playing guitar at the age of 12. Playing Beatles and Stones songs with various bands, he discovered Bob Dylan in 1964 and started to play blues and American traditional folk music.
At the end of 1971, he left France for the United States hoping to see his idols, Big Joe Williams, John Hammond etc.… in Greenwich Village clubs.

After returning to France, he started to perform in the budding club and festival circuit.
His guitar style is based on both traditional playing and improvisation. After studying Lightnin’ Hopkins, Robert Johnson and different acoustic blues styles, he discovered “White music” by Doc Watson, Merle Travis and Jerry Reed. His playing is a mix of all these influences.
In 1998, he was named Best Acoustic Blues Guitarist at the First Edition of the France Blues Awards.
He plays at clubs and festivals, and he has released several albums.
