2017 program : Patrice Jania - picking


Finger picking

In 1996, after the death of Marcel Dadi and the tribute of the « Superpickers » to his music at the Olympia, Patrice (one of the 4 superpickers) had a discussion with Franck Cheval, the renowned luthier. They had met before during the first festival of Issoudun when Franck delivered his new guitar "Princess" to Marcel.
Patrice wanted a new guitar made to his own taste, one you keep all your life. The instrument was designed on paper and completed in 1997.
Then Franck Cheval introduced Patrice to Francis Cabrel who therefore had the opportunity to hear Patrice Jania’s guitar versions of several of his songs.
This led to a project of a CD and the first volume of « Voyage en guitare » was released, followed by others dedicated to Maxime Le Forestier, Pascal Obispo, Johnny Halliday, Renaud, Hugues Aufray.
