“The best house band in the country” Wizz Jones.
Friday October 12
He’s the performer who has everything….not only widely acknowledged as one of the finest guitarists in the world but also acclaimed for his brilliant song-writing and stunning interpretations of traditional work.
Forty five years into a glittering, award-laden career, he remains firmly at the peak of his profession.
No-one has more successfully combined the diverse elements of British, Afro-American and old time music. Those 15 years he lived and worked in the USA were well spent. On stage and in the studio he has collaborated with, among many others, Jackson Browne, David `Lindley, Richard Thompson, June Tabor, Kelly Joe Phelps, Martin Carthy, Steve Miller and David Hidalgo.
He has been nominated an astonishing 27 times in the 15 years of the BBC folk awards – more than any other performer – and in nine successive years was a Musician of the Year nominee, a prize he has won twice.
He is, as The Observer put it in reviewing a recent “exquisite” album, “a master musician at the top of his game.”
Supported by the House Band, The Blinkin’ Buzzards
