ďHeís the greatest guitarist in the world. The ultimate virtuoso. His skill is extraordinary, his ear is extraordinary and heís gifted on just about every level.Ē - Eric Clapton
If you tagged along when the blues dragged Rock n Roll into a honky-tonk and started doing shotsÖ youíd be just about primed to witness the extraordinary rollicking prowess of godís favourite guitarist Ė Albert Lee.
Albert Lee is one of the absolute greatest guitarists in both rock and country music history. Included on Albertís 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 Fatís Dominoís ďIím ReadyĒ 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.
In 2002 the man known as Mr. Telecaster shared the stage with Paul McCartney at the Concert For George and won a Grammy Award in the same year for a performance with bluegrass icon Earl Scruggs. Albert appeared at Eric Claptonís Crossroads Guitar Festival in 2007, 2010 and 2013.
Itís been nearly a decade since Albert Lee last brought his beloved Ernie Ball Music Man guitar to Australia but heís 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.
Donít be the one that hears it from a friend how fabulous the show was once itís all too late.
As Emmylou Harris said: "When Saint Peter asks me to chronicle my time down here on earth, Iíll be able to say (with pride if thatís allowed) that for a while I played rhythm guitar in a band with Albert Lee.Ē
