It was an incredible GIG with the John Jorgenson Electric Band during the Summer when he came to play for Mundell Music. It was also lucky that whilst John was staying at the Hotel prior to his GIG Albert Lee was playing at Backstage. Yes, you guessed it, John played a couple of songs with Alberts Band. You had to have been there Two virtuoso Guitarists for the price of one!!!!
John Jorgenson is acclaimed as one of the best guitarists in the world. He is regarded as one of the pioneers of American gypsy jazz and is one of the most respected virtuosos of this celebrated style. Not only this, with his signature Fender guitar, John has worked with the likes of former Byrd Chris Hillman and Elton John, and is a member of The Hellecasters.
Albert Lee’s impeccable country music and rock pedigree stretches back over more than 40 years. He has performed with many of the greats in country and rock, including Joe Cocker, Emmylou Harris, Eric Clapton and the Everly Brothers.
As well as being a top guitarist, he is also a red hot piano player and a pretty good singer too. His new band (well, they’ve been together for 15 years!) comprises some of the best known rock ‘n’ roll and country players in Britain.
