Paul Jones & Dave Kelly – Acoustic Duo
5th February 2023 | 7pm – 9pm | The Maltings
The Blues Band may be retiring from touring, BUT their two lead vocalists and founder members, Paul Jones and Dave Kelly, continue to entertain Blues fans with their Acoustic Duo concerts.
Ruggedly durable and timeless, the Blues is perhaps more popular today that it has ever been. Young musicians still cut their teeth on its enticing, 12-ar appeal, but its real rewards, true virtuosity, poise and knowledge, only come with age.
If you’re a true Blues fan, everything you need is here.
Founder members of The Blues Band, Paul Jones and Dave Kelly’s tangled and colourful roots go way back into the true undergrowth of the tradition.
As well as their own original material, they not only know and perform the work of the greats, ranging from Howling’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker through to Sonny Boy Williamson, they have actually played alongside them, and enjoyed their friendship.
After over a quarter century as presenter of his BBC Radio 2 R&B show, as a thrilling singer and harmonica maestro, what Paul Jones doesn’t know about the Blues can be written on a pinhead. The same can be said about Europe’s leading bluesman, Dave Kelly. He’s played with them all, including legends such as James Burton and Buddy Guy. Superb blues vocals combined with guitar virtuosity have elevated Dave Kelly into the higher echelon of international blues performers, where he truly belongs.
A live acoustic set by this dynamic duo is an occasion you’ll never forget!
