Guitar Legends is back! The Epstein Theatre hosts a wonderful guitar show performed live by Gary Murphy plus a very talented band line-up with special guests.

Introduction To Gary Murphy’s Guitar Legends

I have seen the show previously but I’m pretty sure, with the number of historical legendary guitarists to choose from throughout the ages, there may be few additions.

Gary is regarded as one of the finest guitarists in the UK but also plays numerous instruments throughout the evening. The story of guitar history is narrated by broadcasting legend Billy Butler, who gives an insight into the lives and songs of guitar legends including Chet Atkins, Hank Marvin, George Harrison, Brian May, Mark Knopfler, Joe Walsh of The Eagles, Lyndsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac, AC/DC’s Angus Young and many more.

Billy goes into detail, providing informative snippets throughout the show along with quite a few funny quips. He’s still got it!

Special Guests

I was really happy to see guest appearances from Brian ‘Saxophone’ Jones of Merseybeat stars The Undertakers. I try and catch him whenever he is playing locally. Also, amazing vocalist Gary Brown can switch between a Roger Daltrey vocal to Angus Young without missing a beat. Additionally, singing sensation Jade Thunder brought colour and harmony, my favourite song of the evening, The Chain by Fleetwood Mac.

When interviewed, Gary said he is really excited to be touring with Guitar Legends and the show will also be performed at The Brindley in Runcorn on Friday, October 13, the Waterside Theatre in Sale on Thursday, October 26, and the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton on Thursday, November 23.
