Paul Jones and Dave Kelly return to Sodbury
Published on: 01 Jun 2017
Manfred Mann frontman Paul Jones is making a welcome return to Chipping Sodbury this July. He will be joined by co vocalist Dave Kelly and the duo, founder members of The Blues Band, will be performing their live acoustic set at the Baptist Church on the evening of Friday 7th July.
Since announcing the concert organisers Cotswold Edge Events have been overwhelmed by the response and the July date is well on its way to selling out. Organiser Mark Lloyd commented, 'we knew that Paul and Dave are popular but the response has been incredible, everyone is really looking forward to the pair returning to the town.'
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 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 remember. If you’re a true Blues fan, everything you need is here
