Grammy award-winning, legendary British guitarist Albert Lee celebrates over 50 years in the business.
Known for fiery fast fingers and inimitable playing style, Lee’s solo career distills one man’s decades of experience into simple musical mastery: a virtuoso’s virtuoso; a guitarist’s guitarist.
It’s been nearly a decade since Albert Lee last brought his beloved Ernie Ball Music Man guitar to Australia but he’s making up for it in 2018 with shows across the country including appearances at the Adelaide Guitar Festival, The Melbourne Guitar Show, the Sydney Guitar Festival and the Gympie Muster.
Albert Lee is one of the absolute greatest guitarists in both rock and country music history. Included on Albert’s CV are performances and recordings with Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris, Everly Brothers, Keith Urban, Tommy Emmanuel, Dave Edmunds, Willie Nelson, Bill Wyman, Carlene Carter, Jackson Browne, Rosanne Cash, Bert Jansch, Herbie Mann, Keith Richards and Dolly Parton.
With a live show that kicks off with a blistering rendition of Fat’s Domino’s ‘I’m Ready’ and makes joyous pit stops for classic tunes by Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Hoyt Axton, Buddy Holly, Jimmy Webb and Ray Charles, you can be assured of a sensational night of fabulous music as Albert and his crack L.A. band provide a masterclass in guitar picking rockabilly country via a living history of rock and roll.
“One of the finest guitar players who ever walked this earth.” – Vince Gill
