LJ has recorded more than two dozen albums which spotlight his unique touch and tone on acoustic guitar. His latest release, LJ Can’t Stop Playing The Beatles, is his third album of solo guitar arrangements of iconic songs by the Fab Four.
The Wednesday October 11th concert will feature an evening of music by the Beatles plus other favourites .
The Thursday October 12th concert features tunes from the great Anglo-American songbook plus originals for solo guitar.
LJ Plays The Beatles was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine's all-time Top Ten albums. His solo arrangement and performance of The Pink Panther Theme earned him a second Grammy, while his arrangement of Stand By Me was heard nationally in a Diamonds Are Forever commercial.
