The Clapton Unplugged Show the man… the music… celebrating Eric Clapton and his legendary Unplugged Concert ……Layla….Signe …..Before You Accuse Me….Running on Faith….. ……Tears In Heaven…..Wonderful Tonight…I Shot the Sheriff… Eric Clapton’s career has spanned over six decades. Lauded as being the greatest guitarist of all time, his roots are firmly and obviously embedded in the blues tradition of which he remains both a student and visionary. In his unforgettable ‘Unplugged’ Concert, Clapton paid homage and respect to his roots and 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 and Bo Diddley and new songs, including Tears in Heaven, that were an outpouring and expression of a difficult period of his life. It was honest, real, fun, at times raw and very very special! The ensuing Album release won three Grammy Awards and sold in excess of 26 million copies worldwide. ‘The Clapton Unplugged Show’ features the inspired vocals and 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.
