Albert Lee



Undoubtedly one of the finest guitarists the world has ever seen, Double GRAMMY Award Winner Albert Lee 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, always in great demand, he has played on countless sessions worldwide. He has appeared and recorded with many of the finest artists in the music industry, including Glen Campbell, Dave Edmunds, Dolly Parton, Bobby Bare, Joan Armatrading, Ricky Scaggs, Joe Cocker, Willie Nelson and more.

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

In 2017 Albert was awarded a trailblazer award by the Americana Society of the UK.

In February 2018 Albert and his Band appeared on ‘For One Night Only’ special Grey Whistle Test.

In late 2018, Albert joined Eric Clapton, Dave Peacock, Joe Brown and Gary Brooker in a memorial concert to celebrate the life of Chas Hodges.
