Multiple GRAMMY winners Peter Asher and Albert Lee combine their talents for an acoustic evening of songs and stories. As one half of Peter & Gordon, Peter Asher’s voice “literally soared through Carnegie Hall” (Fox News), while Albert Lee has been called “the ultimate virtuoso” by Eric Clapton. Influenced from their earliest days as musicians and performers by great American artists like Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers, Peter Asher and Albert Lee bring those influences to the fore in their first series of shows together as an acoustic duo.

Theirs is a history of song, and this shows will reflect that history. From the Peter & Gordon catalog, Peter Asher and Albert Lee will harmonize on “World Without Love,” “I Go To Pieces,” “500 Miles,” and more. From Albert Lee’s back pages, expect the Jimmy Webb-penned title track from his new acoustic album, “The Highwayman,” Rodney Crowell’s “Till I Gain Control Again,” Hoyt Axton’s “Evangelina,” and more. And of course, mutual inspirations such as the Everly Brothers provide “Crying in the Rain” and “No One Can Make my Sunshine Smile;” from Buddy Holly comes the massive Peter & Gordon hit “True Love Ways” and “Learning the Game.” As Asher and Lee tell us stories of the travels that brought them to so many of the intersections of music history, the two legends bring these timeless songs to life.
