‘Guitar god’ Albert Lee heading to the Mountains

Donned by Eric Clapton as the “greatest guitar player in the world,” Grammy winning legendary guitarist Albert Lee is bringing his hot ‘n’ heavy hybrid picking style live to the Blue Mountains Theatre, August Wednesday 15th.

Albert Lee has been the guitarist for greats like Emmylou Harris and Eric Clapton, and is regarded as one of the best guitarists of all time in rock and country music history. 

Albert Lee + Show is one for history books, marking the first time Lee has performed in Australia in over a decade with deadline shows across the country plus appearances at Adelaide Guitar Festival, Melbourne Guitar Show, Sydney Guitar Festival and Gympie Muster.

“He’s the greatest guitarist in the world. The ultimate virtuoso. His skill is extraordinary, his ear is extraordinary and he’s gifted on just about every level.” - Eric Clapton 

Included on Albert’s CV are performances and recordings with Keith Urban, Tommy Emmanuel, Dave Edmunds, Willie Nelson, Bill Wyman, Carlene Carter, Jackson Browne, Rosanne Cash, Bert Jansch, Herbie Mann, Keith Richards and Dolly Parton.


With a live show that kicks off with a blistering rendition of Fat’s Domino’s “I’m Ready” and makes joyous pit stops for classic tunes by Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Hoyt Axton, Buddy Holly, Jimmy Webb and Ray Charles you can be assured of a sensational night of fabulous music as Albert and his crack L.A. band provide a masterclass in guitar picking rockabilly country via a living history of rock and roll.

"Albert Lee is my hero. It'll be a very, very long time before there is a guitarist to match Albert's ability." - Dave Edmunds 

It’s been nearly a decade since Albert Lee last brought his beloved Ernie Ball Music Man guitar to Australia but he’s making up for it in 2018 with a rockin' line-up of shows across the country.

Don’t be the one that hears it from a friend how fabulous the show was once it’s all too late.

As Emmylou Harris said: "When Saint Peter asks me to chronicle my time down here on earth, I’ll be able to say (with pride if that’s allowed) that for a while I played rhythm guitar in a band with Albert Lee.”
