Event Information

Wilko Johnson and special guest play Poole

Following a recovery from a diagnosis of terminal cancer, Wilko Johnson the original Dr Feelgood guitarist and actor (Game of Thrones character Ser ilyn Payne) enjoyed a return to the live arena.

His return included a number 1 album with Roger Daltrey (Going Back Home), a show at The Royal Albert Hall to mark his 70th birthday and, the release of Blow Your Mind, his first album of new material in decades.

Wilko is famed for his chop-chord strumming action, a technique inspired by his admiration of the late Pirates guitarist Mick Green. With this electrifying sound, his trademark black-suited, scowling look and his characteristic strut, Wilko became one of the guitar heroes of the 1970s and beyond, not to mention on of rock ’n’ roll’s most extraordinary characters. He, alongside his original Feelgood bandmates, is also widely acknowledged as a forefather of punk.
