Renbourn and Jones make it a hot ticket

FOLK and blues legends John Renbourn and Wizz Jones will perform a one-off gig at the Old School, Minto next month.

Renbourn, a former member of famous 1960s band Pentangle, has just completed an extensive comeback tour and is joined by Jones, a guitarist and singer who inspired the likes of Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart and Davy Graham.

Discussing the venue, organiser Rob Armstrong said: “This atmospheric gothic venue was built in the 1880s and stands on Minto Hill overlooking Ruberslaw.

“Limited tickets are available and are priced at £10 and £6 for concessions.

“ It is a bring-your-own-drink evening, although there will be local ale on tap.

“Tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis and as the venue is limited to only 75 people – we are expecting it to sell out very quickly.”

The gig on Thursday, October 6, starts at 8pm and for more information and reservations call Rob Armstrong on 07887 984845, or email at
