Albert Lee and Hogan’s Heroes – Citadel, St Helens – 15 Sep 2012
Posted on: Sunday, Sep 9, 2012
Celebrating 50 years in music, double Grammy award winner Albert Lee returns with his multi-talented band Hogan’s Heroes (Gerry Hogan. Peter Baron, Brian Hodgson and Gavin Povey) Albert is without a doubt one of the worlds finest guitar-players. “He is a great great player, fluid, lyrical and free” and “above all he is a truly wonderful singer, soulful and strong” (to quote Eric Clapton). Always in demand, Albert has been featured on Terry Wogan on Sunday, Simon Mayo’s Drive Time and at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads festival on two occasions. He also played at The Concert for George (a tribute at the Royal Albert Hall to George Harison). Albert and the band completed a successful tour of the USA in the summer of 2010, the highlight being in Chicago when they were joined on stage by Vince Gill, Ricky Scaggs, James Burton and Bobby Cochran.
