Duane Eddy (+ Nel Bryden)
Saturday 19 May, 8pm
King of the twanging guitar, Duane Eddy is one of popular music’s truly great instrumentalists. And the man whose 1960 smash Because They’re Young unseated Elvis as NME’s World’s Number One Musical Personality is back. With a 100 million-selling legacy behind him, Eddy comes bang up to date with a superb selection of work from his latest album, Road Trip. His unique sound taps deep into vintage rock ’n’ roll but also embraces the unexpected.
Support for Duane comes from Nell Bryden, a blonde bombshell from Brooklyn who has the urban lifestyle in her blood, the country spirit of Americana in her soul, and the great American songbook in her head.
