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.
