Albert Lee

Event Date: 
Wednesday, August 28, 2013 - 7:30pm

Grammy-winning guitar legend Albert Lee has toured and recorded with a host of top-selling artists:Joe Cocker, Emmilylou Harris, Eric Clapton, Jackson Browne, Roseanna Cash, The Crickets, Rodney Crowell, Nanci Griffith and countless others.

In 1976, A&M Records signed Albert Lee as an artist in his own right but his solo career was sidetracked with constant touring and studio work. He released three solo albums in the 80's, and was then recruited into the role of guitarist and musical director for the reunited Everly Brothers, a role he remained in for 20 years.

An invitation by steel guitarist Gerry Hogan for Albert to play his annual festival led to the formation of Albert Lee and Hogan's Heroes, who actively tour in the UK and Europe and have 7 albums to their credit. Their new CD, "On the Town Tonight" was released on February 14, 2012.

Albert remains an occasional member of the Crickets, and tours regularly with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings. Albert released additional solo efforts "Heartbreak Hill" in 2003 and "Road Runner" in 2006.

A summer jaunt with John Jorgenson prompted Albert to form his own US band in 2011. With several sell-out performances already behind them, the newly minted Albert Lee Band continues to entertain audiences across the USA.

Albert's next big project is the 70th Birthday Celebration, a solo album, documentary and concert project celebrating his illustrious career in music. Visit www.albertlee.co.uk to find out more. Audio/Video Clips
