Star line-up for Henley Jazz & Blues week

A star line-up is set to drop into Henley for the celebration of jazz and blues at The Crooked Billet.

Mick Ralphs, of Mott The Hoople and Bad Company, will be performing with his blues band and last year's headliner Whitesnake guitarist Mick Moody and his band.

Henley Festival performer, jazz pianist George Montague, and Chris Jagger complete the line up.

All four concerts will be performed at the restaurant.

Paul Clerehugh, chef and proprietor at the restaurant, said: “Having Mick Ralphs down here will be a treat for everyone.

"He’s an outstanding blues guitar player and anyone who’s heard those albums from the 60s and 70s will be itching to see him. We certainly are.”

Micky Moody will be familiar to those who came to the 2013 event, where he opened to a sell-out audience with his normal performing partner Papa George.

Papa was due to play again this year but illness has forced him to step down.

Chris Jagger is well-established in blues and roots music.

He has made a name for himself independently of his brother, Mick, The Rolling Stones vocalist.

The organization has also attracted the blues singer and broadcaster Paul Jones as patron.

Visitors who come to more than one performance will also walk away with a free CD.

Micky Moody and Band will be performing on Tuesday, November 11, George Montague & Band will take to the stage on Wednesday, November 12, Mick Ralphs & Band will play on Monday, November 17, and Chris Jagger & Special Guests will perform on Wednesday, November 26.

Henley Jazz & Blues Week is at the The Crooked Billet, Newlands Lane, Henley, from Tuesday, November 11 - Wednesday, November 26.
