Coup de cœur pour un luthier espagnol -David Prat

Jean-Marie Redon a eu l’immense plaisir de faire remettre à neuf un très vieux banjo oldtime (19e siècle) par David Prat. Ce fut l’occasion de rencontrer de ce talentueux luthier espagnol et de découvrir ses magnifiques instruments.

David a commencé à fabriquer des instruments en 1995. Les deux premiers étaient des Mountain Dulcimers, puis il a fait des ukulélés, des banjos-mandolines. Autodidacte, il a parfait son savoir-faire en voyageant aux États-Unis et en y rencontrant des luthiers. En 2008, il a commencé à commercialiser ses instruments sous le nom Prat Instruments. Il fait principalement des banjos oldtime, des banjos bluegrass, des banjos ténor, des dulcimers, des banjolélés.

Son but est de fabriquer des instruments à l’ancienne et qui soient abordables, qui soient beaux et qui sonnent bien. David est lui-même musicien et joue du banjo oldtime et du dulcimer.

La plupart de ses clients sont des musiciens originaires du Royaume Uni, du Nord de l’Europe et des États-Unis. Quelques professionnels qui jouent un Prat Instrument: Brad Leftwich, Joel Bruna (Dead Bronco), Jacobo ( LA MODA), Davis McLaughlin ( Johnson Mountain Boys), Seppo Sillanpää.

Le 23 août 2018, Gilles Apap et l’ensemble bluegrass (Thierry Lecocq, Jean-Marie Redon, Sharon Lombardi) ont eu le plaisir de se réunir pour jouer lors des Pyroconcerts de Talloires. Ils ont eu la joie de partager la scène avec François-René Duchâble et Sandrine Sutter, sur fond de show laser et splendides feux d’artifices sur le lac d’Annecy. Quel cadre sublime!
