Canadian fingerstyle guitarist Antoine Dufour signed with Milwaukee’s CandyRat Records in 2005 — before the label was actually open for business. He remains one of CandyRat's most popular artists. He's released six albums, two DVDs, and has more than 50 million views on YouTube.
Dufour, who's based in Montreal when he’s not touring, has been in Milwaukee this week performing and teaching at UWM’s fingerstyle guitar program. He'll play a concert Thursday night at the St. Kate Arts Hotel in downtown, but he stopped by our studio first to share some music.
