Wizz Jones

"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"

"He's a damn fine act in a noble tradition and he's one of the finest guitar players you're ever going to see" Mark Harrison - "Blues In London" (

video clip of Wizz.

The Wayne Drury Project

US singer-songwriter Wayne Drury generated a dedicated following in the state of Oregon in the early 70s, performing his own unique take on acoustic folk/alt country developing at the time.

His continuing battle with MS made playing and singing progressively more difficult until the late 70s when it came to a complete halt. His reputation stalled, but his creative output continued even though the songs were unheard. Until now. His later work is arguably his best. He is currently bedridden in a care facility in Oregon.

His 70s music partner Rob Anderson has put this project together and gathered around him a host of incredible players to perform Waynes' songs.

The project comprises:
Wizz Jones
The Flynn Brothers
Laddie Ray Melvin (first UK tour!)
Geri van Essen
Mark Langmead
Alan McMahon
Rob Anderson

I personally dont rate this pub has a venue despite its got everything a event needs, Stage lighting and a lot of space but not the more for that.
