Having grown up in the Blues boom of the 60’s, Rowland Jones’ music is rooted in the blues but years of playing other genres of music has resulted in material that has been described as ‘Soulful Americana and contemporary Blues’.
His songs have been favourably compared to the work of John Martyn, Mose Allison, Jim Croce and Bill Withers. His most recent solo album, which he describes as the ‘imaginatively titled ‘Rowland Jones – LIVE!’ has been nominated in the Best Live CD category of The 2021 Independent Blues Awards.
This evening, he will be performing with his band The Moveable Feast – the name being a reflection of the number of fine musicians who have been a part of this project including C.J.Hillman (Billy Bragg, Laura Marling, Ethan Johns) Mikey Wilson (Corinne Bailey Rae) and Paul Burgess (10 cc, Martin Barre, Chris Farlowe) Tonight Rowland is joined by legends Bo Lee on bass and Ian Mellor on percussion both well-respected musicians in the North West. You can look forward to an evening of strong melodies, well-crafted lyrics and good grooves.
