Atkins, Chet (1924 - 2001)
Half-length portrait of American country music guitarist Chet Atkins, on stage at Dublin's National Stadium, in 1974. He is seated, holding an acoustic guitar and smiling to camera. A drummer can be seen in the background. It is uncertain whether or not this concert was recorded by RTE.
In addition to being a musician, Atkins was a country music record producer, producing records for Elvis Presley, Jim Reeves and Waylon Jennings among others.
