Must-See Maine Version of Beatles ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’
This incredible video featuring Tim (best guitarist in Portland, there we said it!) Emery is all we need to get pumped for this year's Beatles celebration at the State Theatre. His rendition of the guitar solo (originally performed by Eric Clapton) is spot on.
We are so lucky to have so much incredible musical talent in Greater Portland.
Thanks to YouTube user Kevin Gallagher for putting this gem up from year 14!
The Thanksgiving tradition is now in it's 16th year. If you love the Beatles like these local artists and your friends at the Blimp love the Beatles, ummm, you gotta see it.
