About Jeff Beck
Jeff Beck got his start in music in the ’60s when several random gigs finally led to a spot in the popular English group The Yardbirds in 1965. The band had just lost Eric Clapton as their guitarist, and Jimmy Page, who was a member of the band at that time, suggested Jeff as Eric’s replacement. Jeff was only a part of The Yardbirds for two years, but the band had their most successful run while Jeff was with the group.

In the late ’60s, Jeff formed The Jeff Beck Group, which had several hits. Jeff has spent time in a few other bands over the years, but ultimately he has been most successful as a solo act. He still performs for his fans to this day, and he often accompanies other famous musicians, which is why it is no surprise that he and Imelda May are touring together.
About Imelda May
Imelda May is a popular Irish musician who can not only sing, but she can also play the bodhran, which is a unique type of small drum. Imelda got her start in music in 2003 when she formed the band No Turning Back. The majority of the band’s music is in rockabilly, and Imelda’s talent caught the attention of many music greats, including Elvis Costello and Jeff Beck, who she will accompany on tour. In Ireland, Imelda has had a number of hits, many of which have ranked very high on the charts. Imelda is just getting her start in the U.S., and her tour with Jeff Beck will likely only increase her popularity.
Early in 2010, Jeff Beck and Imelda May performed together to celebrate the 95th birthday of Les Paul, the name of the man behind the world-famous Les Paul guitars. The performance of Jeff Beck and Imelda May together was very well received overall, and critics raved about the show. The two do seem to make a great musical pair, and the upcoming tour is sure to be a real treat for everyone who comes out to see them perform together.
