John meets guitar hero Wizz Jones at BluesFest

Here is a picture of me with blues/folk acoustic guitar legend Wizz Jones.

John Gregory and Wizz Jones

Wizz played at the Big Wheel Blues Festival in Douglas, Isle of Man, on Saturday night (May 11).

It was a fantastic performance and I was pleased I had the opportunity to meet him after his set.

The weekend was full of great music from top international blues acts and quality Isle of Man musicians.

Blue John and Papa Cass (the blues duo I perform in), played on Sunday (May 12). It was the sixth consecutive year we have played at the festival.

Music fans across the Isle of Man will already be looking forward to the 2014 event.

Happy guitar playing,

John

 

John’s guitar and harmonica duo to appear at BluesFest

John Gregory’s Blues duo, Blue John and Papa Cass, will be appearing at the Big Wheel Blues Festival in Douglas, Isle of Man, this Sunday (May 12).

The duo, consisting of John on guitar and Tim Cass on harmonica and vocals, will be performing on the acoustic stage in the Villa Marina Gardens from 1pm to 1.30pm. (If the weather is bad the gig will be moved indoors).

This will be the sixth consecutive year the blues duo has appeared at the festival. Their debut performance together at the event was in 2008 and they have been on the bill every year ever since.
