Country Knights

Lee & Ian are both very experienced professional musicians who have performed in many theatre shows, weekenders, outside events, weddings/private functions and the club scene. Together as the 'Country Knights', they perform as a very entertaining Country Music Duo.

LEE J HODGSON
Lee's career in country music began back in 1979 when he worked up to six nights a week with George Moody and the Country Squires. Lee was a founding member of one of Britain's most popular bands, Memphis Roots, being with them throughout their 14-year existence (1987-2001), backing visiting American artists in the 90's, while working at Wembley Arena, Blackpool Tower Ballroom and the Royal Albert Hall along the way. After working with acts such as Longshot, the Billy Curtis Band, Kentucky Cousins, Jim Worton, Boney Fingers and the Steve Cherelle Band over the past 10 years, as well as with Ian Geast in a number of musical projects, Lee has, in 2014, now teamed up with Ian as a country duo: Country Knights.

Guitar-wise, Lee has taught at London's prestigious Institute (formerly known as the Guitar Institute) since 1990. He wrote a 200-page tutorial, Hot Country, in 1999, was a regular columnist for both Guitarist and Guitar Techniques magazines for almost 20 years (1984-2010) and more recently contributed as a reviewer and interviewer for Guitar Interactive. Lee has made many guitar tutorial videos for Lick Library and more recently became a featured artist (country) at Jam Track Central.

IAN GEAST
Ian started out in music as a teenager in various band formats and later turned professional, performing in the UK and abroad in many theatre shows and bands such as the Consultants, Midnights, Benny & the Jetts, Blue Shadows, All Star Band, Shazam, and Silver Shadows. He has worked with many named artistes over the years including Lee J Hodgson for a good number of them.

The Country Knights play a wide range of floor fillers, with beautiful ballads and upbeat dancing numbers that are sure to give you and your guests a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining show. All the equipment is fully tested (pat testing) and as professional musicians who are members of the Musician's Union, they have their own public liability insurance cover.

Lee & Ian pride themselves on their professionalism and the quality of their performance. So if you're looking for a Country Duo then look no further than the Country Knights.
