Robin Trower

Robin Trower

March 20, 2018

Legendary solo artist and Procol Harum guitarist Robin Trower helped define an era of guitar-riff rock with the first four notes of 1974’s “Bridge of Sighs.” Trower has garnered the same esteem and prestige as the great players of the time: Page, Townsend, May, Beck and the lot. He's been a Fender Stratocaster endorsee ever since Jethro Tull's Martin Barre let him try one before a gig in the early Seventies, and now has his own signature model – an honor accorded to few. Something’s About To Change released in early 2015 confirmed a world-class musician at the top of his game. The latest release is titled Where You Are Going To. The new CD is more of a rocker, but still squarely based in Robin's love for Blues. Robin's voice is much more confident on these ten new studio recordings, and the guitar work is stunning. The current century has seen Robin wowing fans old and new on both sides of the Atlantic. The stadiums he filled in the Seventies may be a fond memory, but the upside is that audiences in clubs and theatres can witness the magic at closer quarters. Robin will be touring with his favourite line-up: Richard Watts on Bass and vocals, and Chris Taggart on drums. Robin Trower live is an experience not to be missed. Whether you play guitar, or just enjoy a brilliant soulful player, come out and see the show. You will walk away smiling

Inspired by Alexandre Dumas' play La Dame aux Camelias, La Traviata shows us the tragic struggle of a Parisian courtesan, Violetta, who is torn between her desire for true love and retaining her fashionable way of life. Despite Giuseppe Verdi proclaiming the premiere a fiasco, the opera has become one of the most produced works in the operatic canon.
