About This Show

Guitar legend.

Wizz Jones – Acoustic Guitarist, Singer-Songwriter and bluesman! Born 1939 in Croydon, Surrey Wizz began his musical career leading a Country and Skiffle band called The Wranglers in 1957. Inspired by seeing Big Bill Broonzy and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Wizz learnt most of his guitar licks from the likes of Davy Graham and Long John Baldry whilst playing in the coffee bars of London’s Soho. In April 2019 Wizz celebrated his 80th birthday with a sell-out concert at The Cadogan Hall in London and later that same year was presented with a lifetime achievement award at The BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in October.
