I have recently come across some fantastic lap steel players from Europe – they can definitely give Americans a run for their money. Some links below.
This couple are from Italy – They merge classic American Rock and Roll and Country sound with original Italian lyrics that are ironic, bluesy and storytelling. Plus they feature fabulous lapsteel and guitar playing from Paolo Roberto Pianezza and great rockabilly bass from Francesca Alinovi.
Here is link to their page on Spotify
Paulo Conti is a great Dobro, resonator and lap steel player from France who pays with several other French artists such as Kanis and Lou at the Sawmill Sessions in Paris, with The Subway Cowboys and The Kaila Sisters
David Certano is French (from Aix-en-Provence) who makes a string Bender that can be fitted to lap steel guitars to enable you to achieve some pedal steel guitar effects!
