“Charming” is most certainly one of the most important characteristics of Michel Haumont’s music, a French guitarist who already recorded his first album in 1974 at the age of 17. The influence of the budding folk boom back then is unmistakable, Haumont numbers John Renbourn, Marcel Dadi, Merle Travis and Chet Atkins amongst his models. Michel Haumont’s music always exudes lightness, even in contemplative musical moments he never loses the positive underlying mood of his string escapades. When listening carefully, one realizes that a technically masterful guitarist is plucking at the strings. His voicing, the powerful bass and the elegant melodic lines are perfectly rendered in his playing and provide outstanding support for the musical message.
