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.
