Albert Lee, Cindy Cashdollar, MrJordanMrTonks

British-born guitarist Albert Lee holds a central seat in the pop music canon, though his is not a household name; as a session player and touring companion for countless country and rock stars in the 1970s and ‘80s, including Emmylou Harris, Eric Clapton, The Everly Brothers and Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings, he became legendary in industry circles for his range and versatility. Now 71, Lee continues to tour both solo and with his Hogan’s Heroes group. He headlines The Foundry Friday in a collaboration with virtuosic, Texas-based steel guitarist Cindy Cashdollar. Local Americana duo MrJordanMrTonks opens.
