Over his well respected career he has worked with The Everly Brothers, Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris and Joe Cocker, winning accolades including Guitar Player magazine’s Best Country Guitarist and of course a Grammy.

Indeed Eric Clapton once described Lee as “The ultimate virtuoso. His skill is extraordinary, his ear is extraordinary and he’s gifted on just about every level.”

Our review of his visit to The Ironworks in 2013 concluded “As befits a septuagenarian legend with a bright red Fender strat, the crowd treated every minute like it was precious.”

Albert Lee will return to Inverness with his band on Wednesday May 20th 2020
