On April 27th two-time Grammy award winning fingerstyle guitarist Laurence Juber is going to play Morrisburg. Fuzing folk, jazz and pop, Laurence is known both for his time as lead guitarist in Paul McCartney’s Wings and for his signature solo career that now spans some twenty solo recordings. The San Francisco Chronicle has written this about Laurence’s playing: ” …the notes spin out of the songs with such finesse and musical agility, it’s hard to believe he has only 10 fingers and six strings.” Or as the San Diego Reader says: “He has a fluid style that shifts gears through simultaneous jazzy chording, leads, and bass lines, while weaving in and out of musical thoughts faster than a Formula One racer. Laurence earned his first Grammy with Paul McCartney and his second for his incomparable solo arrangement of ‘The Pink Panther’. His album ‘Pop Goes Guitar’ includes his arrangement of ‘Stand By Me’ that received widespread international airplay and his ‘LJ Plays the Beatles’ was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s’ all-time Top Ten albums. The show which takes place at St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage in Morrisburg starts at 7pm. Tickets are $18 in advance or $20 at the door (all tickets general admission). Tickets are on sale at Basket Case in Morrisburg; Strung Out Guitars in Cornwall and Compact Music in Ottawa.
