Richard Bruné, luthier
This installment of Classical:BTS finds us spending time in the Chicago area with Richard Bruné—a luthier who specializes in making and repairing high-end guitars, with a focus on flamenco guitar. We explore his new workshop and studio in Wauconda, a space and passion he shares with his son Marshall. Bruné is almost entirely self-taught both as a craftsman and as a guitarist. His instruments have been purchased and played by famous guitarists from around the world and displayed at the Smithsonian Institution.
Follow Bruné’s journey, which includes a special performance of a standard flamenco pieces for our cameras, on this episode of Classical:BTS.
