[MUSIC ~ UK]
Peter Asher [Peter & Gordon!] and Albert Lee [Everly Brothers] are coming to Adelaide’s Trinity Sessions to present The Songs Of Peter & Gordon, The Everly Brothers and other classic hits in music and stories. The evening will feature the hits of Peter & Gordon, Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers and others, performing songs which influenced them along with songs they influenced – A World Without Love, I Go To Pieces, Bye Bye Love, Crying In The Rain, Lady Godiva and many more!
As one half of British Pop Duo Peter & Gordon, Peter Asher had numerous hits in Australia and around the world in the ‘60s. Peter’s debut A World Without Love topped the charts in the US, UK and over 30 other countries. His days as A & R Director for The Beatles’ Apple Records made history, and he became a legend as Producer and Manager of James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt and a host of others. He remains the only Artist Manager to be featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, and his studio work has led to two Grammy Awards for “Producer of the Year”.
Albert Lee has been called “the ultimate virtuoso” by Eric Clapton, and is a Grammy-winning, 5x Guitar Player Magazine ‘Country Guitar Player Of The Year’. Albert began his career as a touring musician in the early sixties, and soon catapulted onto the stage with the likes of Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton and Emmylou Harris. A 25 year run as Music Director of his beloved Everly Brothers coincided with studio and stage work with Vince Gill, Roseanne Cash and also Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr (The Concert For George). Even with all this, he found the time for over 10 solo and band albums under his own moniker. His numerous studio sessions have led to Four Grammy Awards nominations and two awards.
Theirs is a history of song, and these duo shows will reflect that history. From the Peter & Gordon catalogue, Peter Asher and Albert Lee will harmonise on World Without Love, I Go To Pieces and more. From Albert Lee’s back pages, expect the Jimmy Webb penned title track from his acoustic album, The Highwayman, Glenn Campbell’s A Better Place, and the Jimmy Jones/Otis Blackwell classic Handy Man. Inspirations to both artists such as The Everly Brothers provide Crying In The Rain and Bye Bye Love, while from Buddy Holly comes Well, All Right. As Peter & Albert tell us stories of the travels that brought them to so many of the intersections of music history, the two legends bring these timeless songs to life.
Peter Albert and Albert Lee perform The Songs Of Peter & Gordon, The Everly Brothers And More at Trinity Sessions, 318 Goodwood Road, Adelaide from 7.30pm on Wed 28 Aug.
