Paul Ubana Jones

Wednesday 27th December 2023

Paul Ubana Jones has been the shining light in the New Zealand Blues scene for many a year now. He has criss-crossed the country many times and will be gracing the Playhouse stage for what is sure to be a sell out.

Book early not to miss out.

Born in London to a Yorkshire mother and a Nigerian father, Paul Ubana Jones was playing guitar by the age of 11, beginning a three decade career that would see him crossing continents and recording seven albums of mostly original songs. After graduating from a London music college, where he studied guitar and cello, Paul began to forge the solo acoustic style that he has stuck to and developed over the years. In the late seventies, Paul based himself in Provence, Southern France, and toured all over Europe and North Africa, as well as venturing extensively into Canada and the US.
