“With resemblances to Acoustic Alchemy, Mike Oldfield, Andy McKee, Chrisitan Buchmann… Acadian musical phenomenon Shaun Ferguson transports you with his intoxicating guitar rhythms to parallel universes where « escape » and « wide-open space » may only start to visually describe what is intensely felt.”

About Shaun Ferguson
Through his modern, free and transcendent instrumental music, guitarist and composer Shaun Fergusson captivates his audience with soaring songs that enchant both music enthusiasts and less-experienced spectators. Born and raised in the Acadian Peninsula, located in northeastern New Brunswick (Canada), he has been navigating and exploring various musical fields for nearly twenty years. His second album, Résilience, was released in December 2017, while his first opus, Ascensions, was released in 2011.
A self-taught musician, Shaun has always relied on his instincts to learn how to play, compose and explore different musical forms, which are harmonized to his musical impressions. Through various artistic collaborations, he was able to transfer his guitar-playing skills to many other string instruments, namely the cello and bass guitar, as well as various percussion instruments. With a true passion for art in all its forms, Shaun loves to involve himself in projects that combine poetry, visual arts, dance and music.
Through Intermède Média, a Montreal-based company, some of the artist’s pieces have travelled the world for the last decade. To this day, audiences have had the chance to hear samples of his compositions in documentaries broadcast all over the world, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Australia, Spain, France, South Korea, Japan, China, the Czech Republic and the United States.
