I am often accompanied by the extremely talented double bass player – Brian Throup, giving a more full sound as an acoustic duo.  

I'm an acoustic blues (and jazz) singer/songwriter/guitarist and am more well known as the singer/guitarist of the Jon Walsh Blues Band which has toured in the UK and Europe. I have also performed in the USA.

I am writing to ask if you would be interested in having me play an evening of acoustic blues at your venue. I play blues and ragtime from the prewar period (including Delta slide on Dobro and National steel guitars) through to today. I also perform a number of my own songs one of which,"Two Trains" is included on the Basingstoke Blues Club's Compilation album and "Balling The Jack " which is included on a Reading Arts Centre compilation album. 

Also, I have released my debut solo album “Old New Borrowed And Blue” which is receiving critical acclaim. It features my songs as well as some old blues classics of the 20s and 30s through to contemporary Blues. A couple of tracks - "Conversation With The Blues" - (Jon Walsh) and also "Crossroads" (Robert Johnson, arranged by Jon Walsh) are attached to this email.
