On January 24th, the legendary guitarist Albert Lee will return to the Sportsmen’s. This is from his website:
Albert Lee is one of the most respected and renowned guitarists in music history, having worked with The Everly Brothers, Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris and The Crickets over his long and illustrious career. The British-born country-rock artist started his career during the emerging rock ‘n’ roll scene of sixties London, when he swapped bands with the likes of Jimmy Page and Chris Farlowe.
“The ultimate virtuoso. His skill is extraordinary, his ear is extraordinary and he’s gifted on just about every level.” Eric Clapton After moving to the U.S. and assimilating himself into the country music scene, Albert quickly garnered a reputation as one of the fastest guitar players in the business. He recorded a number of solo albums, and won a Grammy in 2002 for his contribution on ‘Foggy Mountain Breakdown’. He continues to tour today, and plays his signature Ernie Ball Music Man Guitar. “A brilliant guitar player. His sound is unmistakable – often emulated, never equaled”. Emmylou Harris
On January 26th, Strictly Hip will complete their month-long residency at the 9th Ward at Babeville. “A cauldron of Hip classics. Presented with alternate and acoustic arrangements.”
