Sacred Heart Music Center Announces Duluth Does Clapton
We had Duluth Does Dylan, Duluth Does Joni Mitchell, now Duluth musicians will pay tribute to Eric Clapton, I'll tell you why I'm excited about this one.
Eric Clapton wasn't known for his singing, even though he was a good singer. He was known for his chops on the guitar. My Aunt once said, I'm going to play you a song by an artist who can make his guitar sing.
So, the reason I am excited is because we are going to see some of the best guitarists in the area come out and play. We are also going to see the cream of the crop doing iconic songs by different bands and eras.
The Sacred Heart Facebook page has this to say:
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 setlist will feature Twin Ports musicians each interpreting an Eric Clapton song in their own personal style.
