The blues guitar wizard headlines Saturday night at Lyme Regis’s jazz festival
Back by popular demand with a new band and new material, Laurence Jones is building a big reputation in bluesland. His electrifying live performances and industry accolades seal his reputation as a leading figure in the British blues renaissance.
His raw blues guitar playing and strong melodic songs, produce a style of blues not heard since the early days of Eric Clapton. As a result he’s won major awards, sold over 50,000 albums and a dedicated following across the UK and Europe.
He’s played with Status Quo, Van Morrison, Robert Cray, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Burdon, and many more.
Now, he’s released his fifth album, Truth, to critical acclaim. This is Laurence on top form – killer riffs, blistering solos, raw energy personified.
Laurence Jones (Vocals, Guitar), Bennet Holland (Keyboards, Backing Vocals), Phil Wilson (Drums, Percussion) and Greg Smith (Bass Guitar)
