Jon Strong Band plus Pete Davies

After an eight-year lay-off the Jon Strong Band are back on the road. Hooray! With original members Roy Whyke on drums, Duncan Waller on bass and Jon Strong on dazzling acoustic guitar and booming, passionate vocals, this will be the tightest 3-piece band you have seen all year.

Jon Strong had early musical collaborations with many well-known names from the folk scene, such as Kieran Halpin and Tom McConville, and toured with Ry Cooder, Van Morrison, Robert Palmer, Talk Talk, Danny Thompson and Clannad. He has played numerous major festivals including Cambridge, Cropredy and San Bernardino Folk Festival. Back in 1990 Jon produced and arranged PETE DAVIES’ album “Go On And Dance” so we are particularly pleased to welcome Pete back to the Studio to provide support.

“If this came out with the name Peter Gabriel on the cover you can bet it would be hailed as a major artistic renaissance for a world class songwriter. If it came out with an unknown band name and a picture of a bunch of distrait-looking youths from Bristol on the sleeve, it'd probably win the Mercury Prize. Listening to music as good as this on an Own Label CD-R makes me want to weep with frustration at the sheer idiocy of the business we're in”. (Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6).
