Albert Lee at the Dakota

Date:

KFAI presents Albert Lee at the Dakota on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at 7:00. Albert Lee is “the guitar player’s guitar player,” universally recognized in music circles as one of the world’s finest, as well as one of the top rockabilly guitarists in history. In England he’s been a household name, and in Nashville and Los Angeles he’s been one of the most in-demand session guitarists there is; but outside of professional music circles in America, he’s one of those vaguely recognizable names. Albert Lee’s song “Country Boy” helped to redefine country guitar for a whole generation of players, and was later to become a huge hit for multi-instrumentalist Ricky Skaggs. Humble and self effacing, he’s played behind Muddy Waters, BB King, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Everly Brothers, Joe Cocker, and Eric Clapton, who is on record as saying that Albert Lee is “the greatest guitarist in the world.” Please visit the Dakota website at http://www.dakotacooks.com/ for tickets and more information.
