Eric Clapton: Lockdown Sessions

In February 2021 Eric Clapton’s live shows at The Royal Albert Hall were cancelled due to the global pandemic. Determined to play, Clapton brought his band together in the English countryside to create a unique show – a stripped back and intimate performance interspersed with exclusive behind the scenes insights from “Slowhand”.
Clapton surrounded himself with regular collaborators Nathan East, Steve Gadd and Chris Stainton and brought in Grammy Award winning producer Russ Titelman to oversee the sessions. The music explores influences such as Peter Green (Black Magic Woman, Man of the World) and Muddy Waters (Long Distance Call) along with Blues Classics (Got Your Mojo Working), his own hits such as Layla, Tears in Heaven as well as intimate personal songs such as Believe in Life.

The restrictions that led to the cancellation of the original shows, along with all other live music, reverberate behind all the performances as Eric and all the band revel in the opportunity to perform together. As Eric says “All I am trying to do is keep the candle burning”.
