Dave Chappell and Johnny Neel Opening for Albert Lee and Cindy Cashdollar
Albert Lee is “the guitar player’s guitar player,” universally recognized in music circles as one of the world’s finest. Eric Clapton calls him"the ultimate virtuoso", adding "his skill is extraordinary, his ear is extraordinary and he’s gifted on just about every level. When he gets into his stride, I can’t even keep up with him”. Albert has not only worked with some of the biggest names in music, including Mr. Clapton as well as Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and the Everly Brothers, but has also maintained a solo career of his own. Cindy Cashdollar has also worked with notable names such as Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Rod Stewart and more. She received five Grammy awards while playing with Asleep at the Wheel. Cindy’s unerring ability to perfectly complement a song or step out with an imaginative solo has made her one of the most in-demand musicians on the American roots music scene.Share
