From Blues and Old English Folk music influences to Moroccan and Middle Eastern beats and melodies, ACOUSTIC ZEPPELIN is a musical journey around the acoustic world of Zeppelin. Featuring the mandolin, 12 string acoustic guitar, violin and fiddle along with layered 6 string acoustic guitars, and foot stomping backbeats, the show presents the Zeppelin songs as they were performed on record and on stage. These instruments are also used to re-texture some of Zeppelin’s classic “electric” songs, shape shifting them into the acoustic realm. Two vocalists sing in tandem to deliver this diverse range of material, also bringing to life the recorded harmony vocal performances that were rarely recreated on stage.
The music is executed by Sean Cotton on acoustic guitar, foot percussion, and lead vocals; Tamica Herod on lead vocals and hand percussion; George Axon on 6 and 12 string acoustic guitars, electric guitar, and mandolin; Wayne Ferguson on fiddle and mandolin; Mike Phillips on bass guitar.
