Concert location is downtown in a private home. Location confirmed after registration. Event is BYOB. Albert White was fascinated as a young man by the Blues and soon fell in love with the guitar. His Uncle, Piano Red, gave him an old guitar and encouraged Albert to take lessons from Wesley Jackson, Red’s band mate. From there, Albert began taking les sons every Saturday morning. As Albert continued to improve, he wanted to play more and more. In high school, he had his own group and went out on the college circuit playing gigs. In ‘65, Piano Red (aka Dr. Feelgood) recruited Albert to play in his group where he stayed for seven years. With the death of his uncle, Albert formed his own group and was booked by Hit Attractions out of Charlotte, North Carolina, once again, playing the college circuit. During that time he recorded with Clarence Carter on the Peacock Record label and performed back up with Ben E. King and Hank Ballard. Today he is a MusicMaker artist and ambassador. His style – think BB King!
