This session can be streamed on demand now:
Guitarist, producer and composer Justin Adams will deliver an exclusive set from his home in a Serious Livestream Session as part of the Royal Albert Home series.
In these strange times, closing the Hall’s doors is the best way to look after the world, but we are now opening a (virtual) window for you to experience some of the most talented artists around.
This set will see Adams draw together the musical strands of his life. From his childhood in the Middle East, his years in London collaborating with Jah Wobble and others, his travels to Morocco and meeting Tinariwen in the Sahara, to his work with Robert Plant.
Each fascinating anecdote will be illustrated with a song or guitar instrumental straight from his home studio – an Aladdin’s cave of instruments and artefacts from across the globe.
Justin will also chat to his friend and collaborator Mauro Durante (leader of award-winning pizzica group Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino) about the music they will bring on tour this November, as well as performing some of this new music for you.
Adams is also no stranger to the Hall, where he has appeared as lead guitarist for some of the most prestigious names in music, including Robert Plant in 2017.
