Events Jon Walsh, one of the most respected bluesmen in the country, will be bringing his acoustic blues set to the Trafalgar Ballroom Room at the Union Hotel, Penzance, Cornwall on Sept 14th 2011...


Jon is an exceptional solo acoustic and slide guitarist and singer whose made it his mission to bring the sounds of the Mississippi Delta, Atlanta and the Piedmont Hills alive in his performances.

Tickets are 6 and available from http://backroom-blues.eventbrite.com

Jon's style covers a broad spectrum of blues ranging from delta slide on his dobro guitar and Atlanta slide on his twelve string through to early Chicago blues and beyond picked on sick string flat tops.

Artists covered include Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Tampa Red, Elmore James. Willie Dixon, Son House, Blind Willie Johnson, Skip James, Big Bill Broonzy, Mississippi John Hurt and of course, Robert Johnson (the bluesman who allegedly sold his soul to the devil in return for a sizzling guitar technique and a Gibson).

Jon is a true bluesman who feels an obligation to keep the blues alive for the next generation by playing the classics and to keep adding new material to the genre and pushing it in new directions.
