Fly By Night Club and Starr Special Events present Albert Lee on August 12 at the Charles Hotel Perth
Grammy winning legendary guitarist for Emmylou Harris and Eric Clapton returns for first Australian shows this decade.
“He’s the greatest guitarist in the world. The ultimate virtuoso. His skill is extraordinary, his ear is extraordinary and he’s gifted on just about every level.” – Eric Clapton
If you tagged along when the blues dragged Rock n Roll into a honky-tonk and started doing shots… you’d be just about primed to witness the extraordinary rollicking prowess of god’s favourite guitarist – Albert Lee.
Albert Lee is one of the absolute greatest guitarists in both rock and country music history. Included on Albert’s 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.
In 1978 Albert commenced a five-year stint with Eric Clapton and in 1983 encouraged the Everly Brothers to get back together, acted as their musical director and went on to play regularly with them over the next twenty years.
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.
It’s been nearly a decade since Albert Lee last brought his beloved Ernie Ball Music Man guitar to Australia but he’s making up for it in 2018.
