Best foot forward for John Jones

Oysterband’s John Jones and the Reluctant Ramblers will be performing at Hailsham Pavilion on May 26 (7.30pm).

John is an avid walker and each year he is joined by fans and fellow musicians to walk one of the country’s recognised routeways and perform music each night. This year’s walk is the South Downs Way starting from the Wish Tower on May 27 (9.30am), for the first leg of the work up to Glynde.

The journey begins, however, with a special launch concert at the Hailsham Pavilion, the night before May 26, when John takes to the stage with his band, The Reluctant Ramblers, who are made up of friends, fellow members of Oysterband,and guests from Chumbawamba and Bellowhead.
