Eric Clapton’s career has spanned over 6 decades. Lauded as being the greatest guitarist of all time, his roots are firmly embedded in the blues tradition of which he remains both a student & visionary. In his unforgettable ‘Unplugged’ Concert, the music was minimalist, alternating between reworked major hits 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!
Like many guitarists the world over, Mark Shelley was inspired by Eric Clapton . “the way he makes that guitar speak from his heart & soul, ….as a young man, well it just blew me away & I wanted so badly to be able to do the same. I enjoy playing this show so much, it is such a privilege to do so”
Mark is joined by his band - Australia’sfinest musicians whose credits include – Tommy Emmanuel, Moving Pictures, Dragon, Marcia Hines ……
Support Act – ‘The Singers The Songs’: a Celebration of early Singer Songwriters such as James Taylor, Paul Simon, Don McClean, Bob Dylan…..’
