GUITAR guru Albert Lee, hailed as of the world’s finest guitar players, will be joined by his band Hogan’s Heroes for a night of top quality music at Bideford College’s Devon Hall on Thursday, November 29.

Albert should need little introduction to country and rock fans, having worked with top artists, from Emmylou Harris to the Everly Brothers, Dolly Parton and Eric Clapton.

Hogan’s Heroes are some of the most respected musicians in Britain. Together as a group since 1987 they have performed at venues across Europe and many of the great country and rock festivals.

The two hour show at Bideford will see doors open from 6pm with pre-show dining available in the Stucley Restaurant and pre-show drinks in the atria.

This is the latest event in the Bideford College and Plough Arts Centre partnership with events in the new year including comedian Russell Kane, folk group Show of Hands, jazz and blues with Michael Roach and an evening with raconteur Henry Blofeld.

Tickets are available via the college on 01237 429525 or The Plough box office 01805 624624.
