Named the “Best Country Guitarist” for five consecutive years by Guitar Player magazine, Albert Lee brings his blend of country and rock ‘n’ roll to Bend’s Tower Theatre Tuesday, July 9 at 8pm.
Born and raised in England, Lee moved to Los Angeles in 1974, playing guitar for Emmy Lou Harris’ Hot Band and touring the world with Eric Clapton. More recently, Albert toured with former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman. In 2009, Albert received a Grammy for his work on Brad Paisley’s Cluster Pluck.
“This is a rare opportunity to see one of the world’s greatest guitarists up close and personal,” said Ray Solley, executive director of the Tower Theatre Foundation. “Albert takes the Telecaster guitar to new levels of musical mastery. No wonder they created a special guitar for him and named it ‘Music Man.’”
