These iconic British musicians join forces for a musical memoir of the 60s and beyond, as told in story and song.

Chad and Jeremy

Part of the 1960s British Invasion that stormed the U.S. pop charts, this folk rock duo possesses “a subtlety and sophistication unmatched among their contemporaries” (Billboard)—relish in favorites like “Yesterday’s Gone,” “Summer Song,” and “If I Loved You.” “Summer Song” peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1964 and is still heard on radio stations and film soundtracks today. Their sublime pop-folk style has endured the test of time and remains relevant today influencing musicians from ’70s acoustic legend Nick Drake to the indie pop’s Belle and Sebastian.

Peter Asher

Peter Asher’s legendary music career began in 1964 as one-half of the singing duo Peter & Gordon, who amassed nine Top 20 records during their career. Their debut single, “A World Without Love” – a song given to them by Paul McCartney – went to number one in over 30 countries, including the U.S. and U.K. In 1968, Mr. Asher became head of A&R for the Beatles newly formed record company, Apple Records, where he found, signed and produced James Taylor and worked closely with the Beatles on their individual projects.

As a producer, Mr. Asher has worked with such diverse artists as James Taylor, 10,000 Maniacs, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Ringo Starr, Linda Ronstadt, Cher, Morrissey, Robin Williams, Jane Monheit, Kenny Loggins, The Dixie Chicks, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Hans Zimmer and Billy Joel, among many others.  He has been awarded 37 RIAA-certified gold albums and 22 platinum albums in the U.S., and many more internationally.  Mr. Asher has produced thirteen Grammy Award-winning recordings, and in 1977 and 1989 was honored individually with the Grammy Award for “Producer of the Year.”
