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’.
After more than 50 years ‘on the road’ Wizz continues to tour on the Acoustic Folk and Blues circuit, usually solo but sometimes with his Son Simeon on Sax, Flute and Harmonica.”

City Ramblers Revival are named after the famous late 50’s group the City Ramblers, regulars on BBC Radio and TV’s Six Five Special, and resident band of the Skiffle Cellar, Soho.

They recorded for Tempo Records and Storyville and played at the Moscow International Youth Festival in 1957. Today, CRR are Hylda Sims (guitar/vocals), Simon Prager (guitar/vocals) and Doc Stenson (guitar/mouth harp/vocals).

Hylda Sims, a founder member of the original City Ramblers, writes songs, poetry and novels and hosts Fourth Friday, an acoustic music and poetry event at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden.

Simon Prager & Doc Stenson, excellent musicians and entertainers, are veterans of the acoustic blues and folk scene in the UK.

Joe Wilkes is a fantastic singer songwriter whom Americana UK has said is “one of those all-too-rare musicians who, when they play, make you believe in them instantly.” . Joe has been playing around London , the USA and Europe for a number of years. He lives in south london,
