Wizz Jones
Wizz Jones @ Orpington Folk Club, the Change of Horses 2007
Wizz Jones – Acoustic Guitarist, Singer-Songwriter and  Bluesman!
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.

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

After just about 70 years “on the road”  Wizz continues to perform on the Acoustic Folk and Blues circuit.”
