Eric Clapton calls Albert Lee his “favorite guitarist of all time”, so if you’re unfamiliar with Albert’s music, we can only suggest you take Eric’s word, as we have little doubt you’ll also be amazed.
Having James’ sister Kate on the bill only heightens our anticipation of a very special night.
"The greatest guitarist in the world." -Eric Clapton
“Albert is in every sense of the word, a genuine guitar wizard". -Earl Scruggs
“When Saint Peter asks me to chronicle my time down here on earth, I'll be able to say -with pride if that's allowed- that for a while I played rhythm guitar in a band with Albert Lee." -Emmylou Harris
Guitar legend ALBERT LEE first came to prominence during a 1964-68 stint in British Blues and R & B stalwarts Chris Farlowe’s Thunderbirds. After working in the UK bands for touring country acts such as Bobby Bare and Skeeter Davis, Lee’s next full-time berth was two years with the UK answer to the Flying Burrito Brothers and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band-Head , Hands, and Feet. His reputation grew and session work blossomed, including appearances on “The London Bo Diddley Sessions” for Chess and Jerry Lee Lewis’ “The London Sessions”. This and other work with U.S. based greats led to a permanent position in the Crickets, and by the time that ended Albert had long since made Southern California his home. There he became friendly with Don Everly, who had also settled in Southern California; they played regularly on a formal and informal basis, with Albert contributing to Don’s 1974 solo effort “Sunset Towers”. The move to California also led to work on sessions for the debut album of Jackson Browne.
