Thursday, March 16, 2017’s Chowdown

It’s not every Thursday one of Paul McCartney’s old road buddies rolls through Humboldt. But if you don’t mind a trip over Fernbridge you, my friend, can say, “hi hi hi” to a bonafide one-time Wings lead guitarist! Maybe you’re amazed?

Thursday night in The Old Steeple — the beautifully restored former Methodist Church next to the Ferndale Cemetery — English-born guitar magician Laurence Juber will depress you with the level of talent contained in his fingers (Paul knew what he was doing). Yes, ‘twas back in the mid ‘70s when he was but a young working musician in London that Juber caught Macca’s eye and ultimately earned the opportunity to tour the world for three years with the former Beatle until Wings disbanded in 1981. Since then he’s released more than two dozen albums showcasing his fretboard mastery. Sample his dexterity in the YouTube clip below.

More details on that show and others can be had for those who scroll the Lowdown listings below. —AG
