“He’s the greatest guitarist in the world. The ultimate virtuoso. His skill is extraordinary, his ear is extraordinary and he’s gifted on just about every level.” - Eric Clapton
If you tagged along when the blues dragged Rock n Roll into a honky-tonk and started doing shots… you’d be just about primed to witness the extraordinary rollicking prowess of god’s favourite guitarist – Albert Lee.
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 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.
"Albert Lee is my hero. It'll be a very, very long time before there is a guitarist to match Albert's ability." - Dave Edmunds
