Fusing folk, jazz, pop and classical styles, Laurence Juber creates a multifaceted performance that belies the use of only one instrument. The former lead guitarist for Paul McCartney's "Wings" and winner of the Best Rock Instrumental Grammy for the track "Rockestra" from the Wings album Back To The Egg, Juber has developed a reputation as a world-class guitar virtuoso solo artist, composer and arranger and was voted No. 1 by Fingerstyle Guitar magazine.

Juber will be in concert starting at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8, in Katzin Concert Hall at Arizona State University, 40 E. Gammage Parkway, Tempe. Tickets - $8 to $19 - are available at http://music.asu.edu.

Juber has released 15 critically-acclaimed solo albums, including LJ Plays the Beatles, Guitarist and PCH. His solo CD, Pop Goes Guitar, includes the arrangement of "Stand By Me" that was heard nationally in the De Beers "Diamonds Are Forever" commercial.

His latest release, LJ Plays The Beatles Vol. 2, is a follow-up to LJ Plays The Beatles, which is one of Acoustic Guitar magazine's all-time Top Ten acoustic albums.
