Laurence Juber, the two-time Grammy award winning acoustic guitarist, jets in from the US for this two night residency at PizzaExpress Jazz Club Dean Street. Fusing jazz, pop and folk styles and internationally recognised as lead guitarist in Paul McCartney’s band Wings, Laurence creates multi faceted performances that belie the use of only one acoustic guitar. A world renowned guitar virtuoso, he has released 23 solo albums; the latest is Fingerboard Road, featuring 13 tunes from the ‘60’s & ‘70’s. 'LJ plays The Beatles' was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s all-time Top 10 Albums.
