**Double Grammy Winner To Appear Live At The Civic - First Dibs On Tickets To Email Subscribers**

On March 3rd 2020 we welcome another music legend to the Civic Stage.

Albert Lee is undoubtedly one of the finest guitarists the world has ever seen, the double Grammy Award Winner is also an accomplished piano player and has a fine singing voice.

He has a soulful voice but can equally ‘tear it up’ rock ‘n roll style.

Co-writer of Country Boy and writer of many other great songs, always in great demand by other artistes, he has played on countless sessions worldwide. He has appeared and recorded with many of the finest artistes in the music industry, including Glen Campbell, Dave Edmunds, Dolly Parton, Bobby Bare, Joan Armatrading, Ricky Scaggs, Joe Cocker, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Travis Tritt, The Blue Caps, Robert Wells and Earl Scruggs.

Albert was a member of The Everly Brothers Band, Emmylou Harris’s Hotband and Bill Wymans’ Rhythm Kings and toured extensively with them. He also toured with his own band, Hogan’s Heroes for many years.

In November 2002 Albert was amongst other world class names appearing at the Royal Albert Hall in the ‘Concert for George’, a tribute to George Harrison. In 2007, 2010 and 2013 Albert appeared at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival in Chicago.

He appeared at a tribute concert honouring The Everly Brothers at The rock and roll hall of fame in Cleveland, Ohio in 2014 duetting with Emmylou Harrison, Peter Asher and Alison Morer. This was an amazing event with a whole host of stars..Vince Gill, Graham Nash, Alison Krauss, Rodney Crowell to name but a few. Don Everly joined the ensemble on stage for the encore and sang on the last verse of Bye Bye Love.

In December 2017 Albert joined Emmylou Harris, Glen D Harding, Ricky Skaggs, The Whites and Jerry Douglas for a benefit concert at the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville. An excellent evening enjoyed by all who attended.

In 2017 Albert was awarded a trailblazer award by the Americana Society of the UK.

In February 2018 Albert and his Band appeared on ‘for one night only’ special Grey Whistle Test -Click link for video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs5xaaZG83c

Brierley Hill Civic

Building a vibrant community facility

Brierley Hill Civic Hall has been host to artists, performers and theatre production since the 1960s and is in the heart of our community. In recent years, its usage had dropped while costs have remained or risen. The Hall was often closed during the day and it was not operating at its full potential as a hive for all sorts of activity.

Rejuvenating the Civic

In February 2015, Dudley Council entrusted Dudley CVS with rejuvenating Brierley Hill Civic Hall on an 18-month trial. This is part of Duduley MBC's move to become a 'community council', a council that enables and supports communites to do things for themselves rather than being a body that does things to or for people and communities.

During the trialIn the first two months of the trial, Dudley CVS:

  • built relationships with existing users, schools, colleges, voluntary organisations, promoters, artists, businesses and entertainers.
  • welcomed and engaged anyone who wanted to make great things happen at the Civic. In March 2016, Dudley CVS threw open the doors of the Civic. People who had never been before toured the space, sharing their ideas and inspiration, while past users shared their experiences. Around 60 people joined Dudley CVS to share their inspiration. The report (written and visual) can be viewed at http://tinyurl.com/ocq2ncj
  • shared and held open conversations with the media, residents, colleges, businesses and promotoers. Conversations have been shared more then 200 times online.
Dudley CVS is looking forward to building upon this, to encourage local talent to use the Civic Hall as a showcase for their skills and ensure that the Civic reflects local heritage and is a vibrant community hub for everyone.
