Albert Lee, by common consent one of the world’s finest guitar-players, needs no introduction to Country Music & Rock fans.
He has worked with some of the world's top artists, from Emmylou Harris to the Everly Brothers, Dolly Parton to Eric Clapton.

In November 2002, at Eric's request, Albert appeared at the star-studded Memorial Concert for George Harrison at London's Albert Hall, and was featured alongside Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill and Eric Clapton at Eric’s 2007, 2010 and 2013 Crossroads guitar festivals.

Albert is also a member of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings, and fronted the band at the O2 arena on the night of the Led Zeppelin reunion concert.

Albert is a double Grammy award winning musician, whose talents continue to be in demand by fellow performers the world throughout.


This multi-talented band features some of the top musicians in the UK.

Hogan's Heroes was formed by their namesake Gerry Hogan over 20 years ago, specifically to back Albert.  Their first gig took place in 1987 at Gerry’s annual festival for pedal steel guitar.
They have played together on a regular basis since that time, and as a result have become one of the tightest units in music.

Though it might be stretching the ‘Folk’ label just a tad, we love a bit of country and a bit rock and blues so on that basis Albert and the Heroes are a perfect and exciting addition to the Folk in the Barn Autumn line-up.
