Details

John Jones, the charismatic lead singer of award-winning Oysterband, has been an avid walker for many years. In 2009, John combined his love of walking with his music and led a group of walkers and musicians from his home on the Welsh Borders, via the Wychwood Festival in Cheltenham, to the Big Session Festival then in Leicester. They walked during the day and either played a gig or enjoyed their own session in the evening.

Walks have continued every year and now John and his band of intrepid walkers and musicians return to his native Yorkshire to continue the Spine of England Walking Tour he began in 2011, some 6 years ago.

Starting where he left off in Holmfirth, having walked from the Staffordshire Moorlands, John takes to the Pennine Way to walk from the High Peak to The Dales, from Saddleworth Moor to Settle, with gigs each evening.

John will be joined by The Reluctant Ramblers, a bunch of friends and top class musicians. The full band will be: Al Scott, guitar, bouzouki; Tim Cotterell, Fiddle, Mandolin; Rowan Godel, voice, guitar; Lindsey Oliver, stand-up bass, voice; and guest Bof Whalley, guitar, voice and commentary.
