Jeff Tweedy at Albert HallChris Horkan
Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy brings intimate versions of his songs to the grandiose Albert Hall in February, armed with just an acoustic guitar and harmonica.
Tweedy, who previously performed in country-rock band Uncle Tupelo, has fronted Wilco since they formed in 1994, releasing 10 studio albums and winning two Grammy Awards (for 2005’s A Ghost Is Born).
In June 2017 he released his first solo album, Together at Last, the first output of a retrospective series, the Loft Acoustic Sessions, which will see Tweedy re-imagine songs from Wilco’s catalogue, as well as from his Golden Smog and Loose Fur side projects.
Playing ‘unplugged’ (although amplified, we hope), this will be a rare chance to hear Tweedy reworking classics both old and new.
