Eric Clapton’s career has spanned over 6 decades. Lauded as being the greatest guitarist of all time, his roots are firmly & obviously embedded in the blues tradition of which he remains both a student & visionary. In his unforgettable ‘Unplugged’ Concert, Clapton paid homage & respect to his roots & those fellow legends that influenced his playing so significantly.
The music was minimalist, alternating between his reworked pop songs such as Layla, the traditional blues of Robert Johnson & Bo Diddley, and new songs , including Tears in Heaven, that were an outpouring & expression of a very difficult period of his life.
It was honest, real, fun, at times raw, & very very special!
The ensuing Album release won 3 Grammy Awards & sold in excess of 26 million copies worldwide.
‘The Clapton Unplugged Show’ features the inspired vocals & guitar playing of Mark Shelley, who, with his long term band, respectfully recreates the magic of that event.
‘The Songs of James Taylor’…the consummate Singer Songwriter.
You will lose yourself in this intimate performance of some of James Taylor’s greatest hits…. ‘Fire & Rain’….’Carolina’……’Sweet baby James’….& more.
