Wizz Jones: 25th June, Acoustica:23rd July @ Forest Roots

Dear Forest Folk

just letting you know nice early about our last two nights before the summer break.

 friday, 25th June  Wizz Jones http://www.wizzjones.com
'There are few artists with more claim to being a 'musician's musician' than Wizz Jones. Inspired by Big Bill Broonzy, Rambling Jack Elliot, Alexis Korner and Ewan MacColl, and learning his guitar licks from the likes of Davy Graham and Long John Baldry while playing in the coffee bars of London's Soho during the late nineteen fifties.Then busking throughout Europe from the streets of Paris to the markets of Marrakech during the early sixties and later to be cited by John Renbourn and Eric Clapton as an important early influence. With his unique acoustic guitar style, an eclectic repertoire and a 'right hand worthy of Broonzy' Wizz continues to tour on the acoustic folk and blues circuit'  
Make sure you don't miss this night and if you want more info on Wizz there's loads  on the net. He even has an entry in Wikepedia!
