The Lincoln Theatre and the Rick Epting Foundation present British Guitar legend
on Thursday, July 24th at 7:30pm.
Albert Lee, regarded by many as one of the world’s finest guitar players, with a career spanning more than 50 years, needs no introduction to Country Music, Blues and Rock fans. Widely hailed for his finger-style and hybrid picking technique, Albert Lee helped to redefine country guitar for a whole generation of players with his song "Country Boy." Albert’s many career highlights include two Grammy wins, 5 years in the Eric Clapton band (at Clapton's request Albert recently played the Crossroads Festival with Eric at Madison Square Garden in April) and stints with the Rolling Stones' Bill Wyman, The Crickets, 25 years with the Everly Brothers, Joe Cocker, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and many more.
The Albert Lee Band includes John Thomas, aka “J.T’, on keyboards. J.T.’s musical resume includes 23 years with Bruce Hornsby, who graciously called John “the greatest keyboard player in the band.” Emmylou Harris, Don Henley, Sparks, Tracy Chapman and a host of other have called upon John’s gifts. Bass player Will MacGregor’s credits are a testament to his wide-ranging talents, having worked with the likes of the Pretenders, Pat Boone, Exene Cervanka, and more. Jason Smith brings both the subtlety of jazz and pounding pulse of rock to his drum stylings. Among his many credits: his jazz trio released the celebrated “Tipping Point” and “Think Like This” CD’s , and on the rock side Jason toured with Five For Fighting, supporting the “America Town” CD with it’s smash single “Superman (It’s Not Easy)”
