The night was filled with a true showcase of music notoriety’s from all walks of Albert Lee’s life to honor his contributions to the world of music.

He has also maintained a solo career and is a noted composer and musical director.The two-time Grammy Award winner started out in England playing rock and R&B and has played with at least two members of the original class of inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Jerry Lee Lewis and the Everly Brothers.

He’s also played alongside Eric Clapton, Bo Diddley, Jackson Browne, Joe Cocker, Eddie Van Halen and countless others.
Being a fan to the concept of the fundamental music style has truly opened my eyes that talent is never limited watching the acts of Albert Lee and his All-Star showcase. With a sold out show, it really expresses how loved Albert Lee is and the appreciation of his musical talent.
Albert Lee surely is determined to perform without limits, deliver with passion, intensity, fire, and appreciation of the music craft. With that being said, Albert Lee is a true and great talent “that holds the key to the holy grail of music” for sure. Having experienced seeing a phenomenal show such as Albert Lee and the All-Star music event, shows true admiration from everyone across the board.
