About Albert Lee
Albert Lee is “the guitar player’s guitar player,” universally recognized in music circles as one of the world’s finest, as well as one of the top rockabilly guitarists in history. In England he’s been a household name, and in Nashville and Los Angeles he’s been one of the most in-demand session guitarists there is; but outside of professional music circles in America, he’s one of those vaguely recognizable names. Albert Lee’s song “Country Boy” helped to redefine country guitar for a whole generation of players, and was later to become a huge hit for multi-instrumentalist Ricky Skaggs. Humble and self effacing, he’s played behind Muddy Waters, BB King, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Everly Brothers, Joe Cocker, and Eric Clapton, who is on record as saying that Albert Lee is “the greatest guitarist in the world.”

About Jerry Donahue
A perennial Guitar Player magazine Reader’s Poll winner, Jerry Donahue has performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in popular music. From his early days in such bands as Fotheringay and Fairport Convention; through his recordings with Gerry Rafferty, Joan Armatrading, Chris Rea, The Proclaimers, John Illsley (Dire Straits), Nancy Griffith and The Beach Boys; through notable performances and recordings with Robert Plant, Elton John, Gary Wright, George Harrison, Cliff Richard, Bruce Welch, Hank Marvin, Warren Zevon, Roy Orbison and The Yardbirds, Jerry epitomizes the consummate “guitarist’s guitarist.”

Jerry has received widespread acclaim for his work as a member of The Hellecasters guitar trio. This band brews up a lethal mix of some of the most astounding instrumental guitar music ever! In 1994, Guitar Shop magazine named the CD, Return Of The Hellecasters, “Guitar Album Of The Year,” describing Jerry as a “freak of nature” whose string-bending technique could be accomplished only by a “four-armed pedal steeler!” In Guitar Player magazine, the late, great Danny Gatton referred to him as “the string-bending king of the planet.”
