Blues Harvest pay tribute to Carrie Fisher

We’ve paid tribute to Carrie Fisher with our latest recording, ‘Leia’, which is released on YouTube today.

The song is a parody of Eric Clapton / Derek and the Domino’s ‘Layla’ which we have rewritten in honour of Fisher’s character Princess Leia from the Star Wars saga. We have also included our arrangement of John William’s classic Princess Leia theme in the track.

You can watch the VHS-style retro video featuring the band performing against projections of the iconic Carrie Fisher character right here.

As Star Wars fans, Carrie Fisher was extremely important to us and will always be remembered. We wanted to demonstrate this with our latest video, released on the 2-year anniversary of her passing. She was a rebel and an icon, and I hope she would have appreciated our small tribute. As Luke says so memorably in The Last Jedi; ‘no one’s ever really gone’, and we think it’s wonderful that her memory lives on in the hearts of every single Star Wars fan today.

An mp3 of the track has been made available for free to subscribers of the band’s mailing list – to download just fill in your details on the below form and the file will be emailed to you.
