Never miss another 'Wizz Jones' show
Wizz Jones never knew that Bruce Springsteen had heard of him – until last May, only a couple of weeks after Wizz played the Greystones, when Springsteen opened a show in Berlin with a song Wizz wrote over forty years ago – When I Leave Berlin.
More recently still, Wizz, whom Keith Richards praised lavishly in his autobiography, features in the cinema released documentary Acoustic Routes, about his late friend Bert Jansch.
Wizz Jones is a maestro of the acoustic guitar who learned at the feet of Big Bill Broonzy and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and has all the stories, as well as the songs, of fifty years on the road.
Wizz Jones has been playing his own brand of folk-blues since the late 50's and still can be relied to put upon a fine show of old and new tunes mixed in with anecdotes and Wizz's unique sense of humour.
Some of the best blues, contemporary and traditional acoustic guitar music around is attributable to this man who is at the roots of the English folk and blues scene.
'... the most underrated guitarist ever...' (Burt Jansch).
