Juber earned a degree in music from London University where he studied classical guitar and lute. He put a successful studio career on hold to join Paul McCartney's post-Beatles effort, Wings, as its lead guitarist. After Wings disbanded, Juber moved to the United States where he has worked as a studio musician and played for numerous television shows and movies, including the original soundtrack to the recent documentary Children of the Harvest.

The San Francisco Chronicle has said that Juber "gloriously articulates the melody and never succumbs to show off playing... His playing is just short of sleight of hand and like all magicians, he makes it seem effortless."

The Peterson Concert Series is free and open the all through the support of the Peterson Foundation.
