    Robin Trower

     The Robin Trower story started in the mid Sixties when he began his recording career in the Southend rhythm and blues band the Paramounts. But the first time Trower truly surfaced on rock’n’roll’s radar was in 1967, with Procol Harum – house band of the Summer of Love. Though not on their mega-hit ‘A Whiter Shade Of Pale’, he completed five albums and many tours with them before breaking away for a solo career in 1971. Robin soon found himself outselling Procol by a considerable factor as he tuned in to the heavier zeitgeist of a new decade, his second album, ‘Bridge Of Sighs’ reached the Top 10 in the States. 2014 is the 40th anniversary of the release of “Bridge of Sighs”, and is being marked by several celebrations, including this tour.

    After a long absence, Robin will return to the stage in the US for a six week tour in October and November 2014. It will feature a trio, Robin’s favourite line-up, with Richard Watts on Bass and vocals, and Chris Taggart on drums. This will be the first tour to spotlight songs from “Roots and Branches” together with many of the audience favourites. Make no bones about it, Robin Trower is an axeman’s axeman. He’s been a Fender Stratocaster endorsee ever since Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre let him try one before a gig in the early Seventies, and now has his own signature model – an honour accorded to few.
