One of the most respected and renowned guitarists in music history, the Grammy Award-winning Albert Lee has worked with the likes of Eric Clapton, The Everly Brothers, The Crickets and Emmylou Harris over an illustrious career spanning 60 years. His unique picking style – performed at breakneck speeds that have to be seen to be believed – has earned him the title of “the guitarist’s guitarist”.

With his unique blend of rock ’n’ roll and country ballads – featuring his blistering signature hit “Country Boy” – this is your chance to see a true legendary guitarist in action in his 80th year.
