Ralph McTell & Wizz Jones

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Summer 2016 saw the release of Ralph McTell and Wizz Jones’ first recording together after a 50 year musical friendship, aptly titled About Time.  They had such a great time playing and performing together, they decided to go back into the studio, and the result is About Time Too, released November 2017.

As Ralph joked, “We felt we should keep up the momentum while we’ve still got time” pointing out that he and Wizz have over a century of professional musicianship between them.

The track list is made up of Ralph and Wizz’s favourite songs by other writers; some learned at the beginning of their careers as buskers, and others picked up on their respective musical journeys.

“The songs we selected only made it onto the album if they have either great melodies, interesting lyrics or room for an unusual arrangement.  Hopefully there’s at least one ‘new’ old song for everyone” said Wizz.

Ralph McTell is a singer songwriter, best known for his hits Streets of London and Clare to Here.  His career has taken him across the globe from London’s Royal Albert Hall to Sydney Opera House, with a few stops in-between

Wizz Jones is a singer songwriter, cited as a profound inspiration and influence on musicians such as Keith Richards and Rod Stewart.  Wizz’s songs have been performed and recorded by many artists including Bruce Springsteen.
