Double Grammy Award Winner, Albert Lee returns to the UK, 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, and always in great demand by other artistes, he has played on countless sessions worldwide.

Albert was a member of The Everly Brothers, Emmylou Harris and Bill Wyman’s 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.
