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. 

 

Support Act – 
‘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…
