Stellar blues guitarist to rock the riffs in Newbury

When Laurence Jones previously played Arlington Arts N2 reviewer Brian Harrington said: ”A three-times winner of Young British Blues Artist of the year award he is widely regarded as a prodigious talent and a guitar virtuoso. He did not disappoint. If you love your blues hot with a generous portion of solid rock you must see Laurence Jones... The standing ovation was rewarded with an encore of Foolin Me and Purple Haze. Stellar".

The multi-award-winning guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter born in Liverpool brings his 8th studio album ‘Bad Luck & The Blues’ on tour to Arlington Arts, Snelsmore, with his dynamic power trio on Friday, February 9 (8pm).

Released in August 2023 on ‘Marshall Records’ the album charted #1 in The Official Jazz & Blues Charts & #15 in the Independent Album Charts in The Official UK Charts.

Music Radar voted the young Laurence one of the world's top 10 blues-rock guitarists. He's shared stages with legends like Sir Van Morrison, Sir Ringo Starr, Jeff Beck, Status Quo and Joe Bonamassa.

Buddy Guy once compared him to a young Eric Clapton with a devoted fan-base across the UK and Europe. Laurence's virtuoso performances earned him many awards and over 50,000 album sales. Jones has also appeared at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including the Royal Albert Hall in London and New York’s Carnegie Hall.
