Peter Frampton will be the special guest at the upcoming Dec. 9 installment of Blair School of Music’s Conversation Series at Ingram Hall. The event will be free and open to the public, but tickets will be required and will be available in the Blair Administrative Office at 10 a.m. beginning Nov 18. There is a limit of two tickets per person to the event, and more event information is available at blair.vanderbilt.edu. During the upcoming session with Frampton, Senior Lecturer Jen Gunderman will conduct an on-stage interview with the rocker and audience members will have a chance to ask questions afterward.

“Peter Frampton is a musical icon whose innovative guitar techniques revolutionized rock music in the 1970s,” said Mark Wait, Dean of the Blair School of Music. “I can’t think of a better performer to relaunch the Blair School’s Conversations Series, which spotlights important artists discussing the finer points of their craft.”“I am honored to be asked to come say a few words at Blair,” Frampton said. “I hope I can give some insight into what a musical career can be like, from in front of an audience and in the green room to writing and recording, always with an ever-present passion for music, which is the driving force behind it all.”

Blair’s Conversation Series launched in 1995 with an interview with guitar great Chet Atkins, and since then Amy Grant, Marty Stuart, Mark Knopfler, Steve Earle, Randy Newman, Eddy Arnold, Ben Folds, and many more have participated in the informative series.
