The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
This summer, as always, Culver City is presenting a series of free concerts in the courtyard of Culver City City Hall. The 2012 summer series offers rock, r&b, jazz, soul, and country acts on six consecutive Thursdays this July and August at 7:00 p.m. The festival is produced by Gary Mandell of Culver City’s Boulevard Music.
This Thursday, August 1, country, rock and blues guitarist Albert Lee will perform. An English guitarist known for his fingerstyle and hybrid picking technique, Albert Lee played with Joe Cocker and Emmylou Harris in the 1970s and Jackson Browne, Bo Diddley, Herbie Mann in the 80s. He's prominently featured on Eric Clapton's Just One Night album from 1980 and toured with the guitarist for years afterward. Not a bad endorsement.
