Peter Asher and Albert Lee To Perform at Fogartyville in Sarasota, FL
Spend an evening with multiple Grammy winners and music legends, Peter Asher & Albert Lee, as they combine their talents for an evening of songs and stories at Fogartyville.
As one half of British Pop Duo Peter & Gordon, Peter Asher had numerous hits in the USA and around the world in the ‘60s. He was subsequently A&R Director for the Beatles’ Apple Records, and became a legend as a Grammy-winning producer and manager of James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt and others. 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 had a 25-year run as Music Director for the Everly Brothers, has been a key band member for Joe Cocker, The Crickets, Emmylou Harris and Eric Clapton, and has worked with Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr and others.
Peter Asher & Albert Lee’s history is one of song, and these duo storyteller shows will reflect that history and feature those songs. The songs that influenced them along with songs they influenced. From the Peter & Gordon catalogue, they will harmonize on A World Without Love, I Go To Pieces, and more. From Albert Lee’s back pages, expect the Jimmy Webb penned title track from his new 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 along the road of music history, the two legends bring these timeless songs to life.
