First London headline show for sharp-suited young guitarist Woolley, who spans classic jazz, folk and blues influences in his own contemporary finger-picking style.
In his hometown of Northampton and in London Joe has played shows with old masters of the acoustic scene like Wizz Jones, Barry "The Fish" Melton and Davy Graham. As well as playing in his own right across the UK and Germany, for the past year Joe has toured the UK with Will Carruthers' Freelovebabies.
From influences including Ray Charles, The Kinks, Slim Gaillard, Mississippi John Hurt and Bert Jansch, Joe has fashioned a personal style where the English charm and wit of Kevin Ayers comes backed up with the guitar chops of a modern day Lightning Hopkins. He mixes original numbers with covers of tunes from all across the twentieth century.and beyond.
With support from Jonathan Forbes. This solo fingerstyle guitarist from Notting Hill intersperses Irish ballads and home-spun compositions with classic American folk tunes.
Also a brief acoustic set from Pat Fish, songwriter from the Jazz Butcher Conspiracy.
Special secret guest DJs will take care of the intermissions before taking over the venue at around midnight.
Doors open 8:30pm
