British Rock Guitarist Robin Trower in Concert at Palace; Pirates Take on Cincy Reds (Thurs., 4/5/18)

1) British rock guitar virtuoso Robin Trower is in concert this month at the Palace Theatre. Trower was a member of the legendary group Procol Harum from 1967 to 1971 before starting his own band. He even worked with former Cream bassist Jack Bruce for two albums—one called BLT, their initials plus drummer Bill Lordan—in the early ’80s. “Bridge of Sighs” is a proper display of his guitar-playing prowess and was one of the most famous songs (and albums) of his solo career. Other top songs include “Day of the Eagle” and “Too Rolling Stoned.” Trower’s guitar of choice is his own signature custom Fender Stratocaster. He is touring in support of his 22nd studio album, 2017’s Time and Emotion. 8 p.m. 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg. (RH)
