Duluth Does Clapton: A tribute to the music of Eric Clapton
January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
More than 50 years ago graffiti started to pop up around London that said: “Clapton is God.”
God of the guitar, that is.
On Saturday, January 25th, local Duluth and Superior musicians will pay tribute to guitar god Eric Clapton in a former catholic cathedral.
Eric Clapton’s music career has spanned more than five decades performing with The Yardbirds and John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers before forming his own bands Cream, Blind Faith and Derek and the Dominos, which recorded the classic “Layla” in 1970. A string of solo albums followed which generated hits throughout the 70s and 80s including songs like “I Shot the Sheriff,” “Wonderful Tonight,” “Cocaine,” “She’s Waiting” and “Tears in Heaven” in 1991.
As part of its ongoing tribute series, Duluth Does Eric Clapton will celebrate the work of this influential and highly acclaimed artist with a night featuring his music at Sacred Heart Music Center. The set list will feature Twin Ports musicians each interpreting an Eric Clapton song in their own personal style.
Don’t miss this one-night-only performance. Get your tickets in advance at Electric Fetus Duluth, Globe News Superior or Eventbrite.com.
Tickets: $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
