Albert Lee

Details

Co-writer of Country Boy and writer of many other great songs, always in great demand by other artistes, he has played on countless sessions worldwide.

The British-born country-rock artist started his career during the emerging rock 'n' roll scene of 1960s London, when he swapped bands with the likes of Jimmy Page and Chris Farlowe.

After moving to the US and becoming part of the country music scene, he 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 has appeared and recorded with many of the finest artistes in the music industry, including Glen Campbell, Dave Edmunds, Dolly Parton, Bobby Bare, Joan Armatrading, Ricky Scaggs, Joe Cocker, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Travis Tritt, The Blue Caps, Robert Wells and Earl Scruggs. Albert was a member of The Everly Brothers Band, Emmylou Harris' Hotband and Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings and toured extensively with them. He also toured with his own band, Hogan's Heroes, for many years.

In 2017 he was awarded a trailblazer award by the Americana Society of the UK and in February 2018 Albert Lee and Band appeared on the 'for one night only' special Old Grey Whistle Test.
