An Acoustic Tribute to Led Zeppelin
An Acoustic Tribute to Led Zeppelin will be held at the Historic Talladega Ritz Theatre at 7 p.m.
When someone says “Led Zeppelin,” the soundtrack in your mind may be an epic rock anthem. But die-hard fans know that some of their best and most inestimable songs were when they unplugged their in- struments, as in much of LED ZEPPELIN III.
In 1970, after two huge albums and a grueling tour of North American, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant retreated to an 18th century Welsh cottage called Bron-Yr-Aur to recuperate and write some new songs. It was the first time the two had spent time together away from the rest of the band, and Page has said that was when he really got to know Robert Plant.
Most of the songs written there were quieter, and gentler, more intro- spective songs. It was from this cottage that the idea of an all-acoustic Led Zeppelin band was born.
Fittingly called Bron-Yr-Aur, four of the best musicians in the Southeast have pulled together their knowledge and talent to gratefully recreate this more subtle side of Led Zeppelin. Allen Barlow, Jon Campbell, Chris Kozak and Mark Lanter are seasoned and in demand performers who faithfully bring you back to the pastural surroundings of the Welsh countryside where the songs were born. Bron-Yr-Aur.
Prepare yourself for a spell bounding musical experience.
