Originally from England, guitar master Albert Lee has worked with a who’s who of the best musicians in a variety of genres. He was first influenced by the sounds of British skiffle artist Lonnie Donegan and Americans like Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent, and later the sounds of Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. Lee has worked with Chris Farlowe, Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, The Everly Brothers, Roseanne Cash and Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings amongst many others and at 70 years of age he shows no signs of letting up his work anytime soon. Country musician Vince Gill calls Lee: “One of the finest guitar players who ever walked this earth…”
