Back in November, we geeked out at the news that classic rock guitarist Robin Trower would be bringing his insane guitar skills to a headlining show at Marathon Music Works on Friday, April 8. Although you may not know him by name, Trower is one of the most legendary British blues-rock guitarists in history. From his early days in rock group Procol Harum to his collaborative works with Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry and Cream’s Jack Bruce, Trower has been blowing minds and inspiring guitarists for decades.
Tickets for his Nashville tour stop are on sale now for $25-$45, but why not grab your own for free? Click below to read more about this stellar lineup, and enter to win yourself a pair of tickets to this can’t-miss concert.
Nicknamed “The White Hendrix,” Robin Trower has been impressing crowds with his mind-blowing guitar skills for decades. He first earned notoriety as a member of rock band Procol Harum, who landed in the history books with their massive hit “A Whiter Shade Of Pale.” Both the track and Trower earned new fans years later when it was featured on the beloved video game Guitar Hero. In recent years, he’s released a stream of solo works and collaborations, including two albums with Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry. If you want to see a true rock legend at work, you need to be in attendance when Robin Trower and his Stratocaster burn down Marathon Music Works next month.
Rock duo Strange Vine are comprised of multi-instrumentalists Toby Cordova and Ian Blesse, who hail from Fresno, CA. The pair have been playing together since high school, and boy does it show. From the haunting “Adeline” to the groovy but atmospheric “Bottom of the Hill,” their catalog is filled with guitar-powered tracks that will blow you away. Their ability to mesh blues, psych rock, folk and pop elements with ease is seriously impressive, so make sure you get there early to scope them out.
