Albert Lee

Presented by Sue Hargreaves
City Varieties Music Hall
Albert Lee is wearing a red plaid scarf and holding a red electric guitar. He is smiling off to the side.

Double Grammy award-winner Albert Lee is undoubtedly one of the finest guitarists the world has ever seen, plus an accomplished piano player. He has a soulful voice but can equally tear it up rock ‘n’ roll style!

He was a member of The Everly Brothers Band, Emmylou Harris’s Hotband and Bill Wymans’ Rhythm Kings. He also toured with his own band, Hogan’s Heroes for many years.

Co-writer of Country Boy and many other great songs, he has appeared and recorded with many of the finest artists in the music industry, including Glen Campbell, Dave Edmunds, Dolly Parton, Bobby Bare, Ricky Scaggs, and Willie Nelson.

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. He also appeared at a tribute concert honouring The Everly Brothers at The Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 2014 duetting with Emmylou Harrison, Peter Asher, and Alison Morer. In December 2017, Albert joined Emmylou Harris, Glen D Harding, Ricky Skaggs, The Whites, and Jerry Douglas for a benefit concert at the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville. He was also awarded a trailblazer award by the Americana Society of the UK.
