Nate Lee is a Nashville based bluegrass musician with a well-rounded musical career. His musical journey started at the age of eight when he got his first fiddle and that path led him through countless lessons and music camps and eventually to an intense study of bluegrass music at the college level. After completing a degree in Commercial Music at South Plains College, Nate went on to tour and record with bluegrass, western swing, new acoustic, and Americana bands. Nate currently tours with the Jim Hurst Trio (featuring Jim, Nate, and Todd Phillips), Irene Kelley, and from time to time can be seen with Town Mountain and Becky Buller.
Although Nate is in demand on stage and in the studio, his first love and finest skill is teaching. With more than twelve years’ experience as a teacher and workshop instructor, Nate has gained a loyal following of students who enjoy his comprehensive teaching methods and relaxed, encouraging demeanor. Nate doesn’t just teach you a song; he teaches you how to play melody, chords, improvise, and groove on that song. With an affinity for turning beginners into jammers, and jammers into professionals, Nate has developed a curriculum that teaches you to play well with others and become the player you’ve always wanted to be! Nate is now playing with the Jim Hurst Trio
