Eddie Lee

Born in Dublin in 1961, Eddie grew up in Sligo and is steeped in its music scene. A self-taught musician with a career spanning 20 years as bassist, producer, composer and recording artist, Eddie has toured internationally and/or recorded as bassist in the rock and pop world with Juliet Turner, Those Nervous Animals, Brian Kennedy, The Pale, Auto da Fe;, Katell Keineg, Nine Wassies from Bainne and in folk territory with Stocktons Wing, Maura O Connell, Dolores Keane, Kieran Goss, John Faulkner, Frances Black, Gary O Briain, Colm O Donnell, Seamie O Dowd, Speranza, Dervish and Cafe Orchestra. Eddie has also collaborated on projects with Enya, Bill Whelan, Donal Lunny, Liam O Connor and co-produced many recordings in a wide range of genres over the the years. Eddie has been performing regularly over the past two years in the Left Bank Sunday jazz club with many stalwarts of the Irish jazz community such as Michael Buckley, Phil Ware, Richie Buckley, Justin Carroll, Michael Nielsen, Louis Stewart and international jazz artists such as Sandro Gibellini (Italy), Veronika Stalder (Switzerland) and Niels Rosendahl (Australia). Originally an electric bassist, Eddie took up double bass mid-career while playing with several Irish folk music acts, though his love for jazz began eventually to express itself in his learning and playing. Eddie has been teaching bass and music theory in Sligo since 1999, having studied at various periods with Mike Nielsen, Rufus Reid, Eric Revis, Sandro Gibellini, Philip Donkin, Greg Burk and Arnie Somogyi amongst others.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
