Peter Asher & Albert Lee
As one half of Peter & Gordon, Peter Asher's voice "literally soared through Carnegie Hall" (Fox News). Eric Clapton has called the Grammy-winning guitarist Albert Lee “the ultimate virtuoso.” Influenced from their earliest days as musicians and performers by great American artists like Buddy Holly and The Everly Brothers, Asher and Lee bring those influences to the fore in their shows together as an acoustic duo.

Audiences came to know Asher via 10 Top 40 hits with Peter & Gordon, whose debut “A World Without Love” topped the charts in the U.S., the U.K., and more than 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.”

Lee 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 Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr (“The Concert for George”). Even with all this, he found the time for more than 10 solo and band albums under his own moniker. His numerous studio sessions have led to four Grammy Award nominations and two awards.

Theirs is a history of song, and these duo shows will reflect that history.

Gold Circle tickets are $35 and reserved seats are $25. The show begins at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m.
