Wizz Jones

“Inspired by hearing Big Bill Broonzy and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Wizz Jones 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 a ‘right hand worthy of Broonzy’!

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

With a career now spanning 60 years Wizz continues to tour on the Acoustic Folk and Blues circuit, usually solo but sometimes with his son Simeon on Sax, Flute and Harmonica.”
