Double Grammy Award Winner, Albert Lee returns to the UK in 2018, this time accompanied by his great Electric Band.
Undoubtedly one of the finest guitarists the world has ever seen, Albert is also an accomplished piano player and has a fine singing voice. He has a soulful voice but can equally ‘tear it up’ rock ‘n roll style.
Co-writer of Country Boy and writer of many other great songs, always in great demand by other artistes, he has played on countless sessions worldwide. He has appeared and recorded with many of the finest artistes in the music industry, including Glen Campbell, Dave Edmunds, Dolly Parton, Bobby Bare, Joan Armatrading, Ricky Scaggs, Joe Cocker, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Travis Tritt, The Blue Caps, Robert Wells and Earl Scruggs.
Albert was a member of The Everly Brothers, Emmylou Harris and Bill Wymans’ Rhythm Kings bands and toured extensively with them.
In November 2002 Albert was amongst other world class names appearing at the Royal Albert Hall in the ‘Concert for George’, a tribute to George Harrison. In 2007, 2010 and 2013 Albert appeared at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival in Chicago.
