Time, once again, for all budding folk-blues pickers to sit at the feet of the master. Kalamazoo nights don’t come better than this.
The ageless maestro remains a musical marvel. Truly the guitarist’s guitarist. The most under-rated of all, according to the legendary Bert Jansch.
Unfamiliar with Mr Jones? Well, this is the man who is name-checked as an influence by Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Rod Stewart and Ralph McTell (To a teenage McTell, Wizz was a legend in 1961!).
Ralph would say that the likes of Wizz, Alexis Korner and Davy Graham changed the course of popular music in Britain.
Wizz’s own influences range from Big Bill Broonzy to Muddy Waters and Ramblin’
Jack Elliott. After 60 years in the business he inspires new generations with his
unique guitar style, eclectic repertoire and a right hand worthy of Broonzy himself.
