Wizz Jones

Legendary folk/blues guitarist comes to Chesterfield!

Originally inspired by seeing Big Bill Broonzy and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Wizz learnt his guitar licks from the likes of Davy Graham and Long John Baldry whilst playing in the coffee bars of London’s Soho in the late 1950’s. 

He then followed the time-honoured buskers’ trail from the streets of Paris to the markets of Marrakech during the early 1960’s and returned to Britain with a unique acoustic guitar style, an eclectic repertoire and “right hand worthy of Broonzy”! 

Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and the late John Renbourn have all named him as an important early influence and Bruce Springsteen opened his Berlin concert in May 2012 with Wizz’s song “When I Leave Berlin”. 

We are delighted to welcome this terrific folk/blues singer and finger-picker to our club.
