Paul Ubana Jones and Darren Watson

Tuesday 2nd-Wednesday 3rd January 2018

The amazing Paul Ubana Jones and illustrious Darren Watson combine their powers to create an amazing show of blues, folk and soul.
Both these guys are masters of their craft so DO NOT MISS this event.

Born in London to a Yorkshire mother and a Nigerian father, Paul Ubana Jones was playing guitar by the age of 11. This was the beginning of a three-decade career that would see him crossing continents and recording eight albums.

Darren Watson is New Zealand's finest practitioner of the blues - a singer and guitarist who can give you goosebumps with the passion and intensity of his playing. He's also an original songwriter of rare skill and imagination.

Watson gained New Zealand-wide fame in the late 1980s as the front-man for Chicago Smoke Shop. The band made two albums and had bona-fide radio hits that made the mainstream record charts.
