Win a pair of tickets to see Wilko Johnson

Wilko Johnson

Saturday 9th March, Southhampton Engine Rooms

Following Wilko’s cancer recovery, the original Dr Feelgood guitarist has enjoyed a rousing return to the live arena recently, including a number 1 album with Roger Daltrey and playing a sold out show at The Royal Albert Hall to mark his 70th birthday.

Heavily influenced by Mick Green, Wilko employs a finger-style, chop-chord strumming action (the ‘stab’, as he describes it). This allows for chords and lead to be played at the same time, giving a fluency and a distinctive sound very unlike the cleaner swat of a pick. Following a stint with Ian Dury & The Blockheads in the 80′s, he eventually formed The Wilko Johnson Band with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass.  Also featuring Dylan Howe on drums, the trio have become one of the most exciting r’n’b bands in the world today.

They will be joined by very special guest Glenn
Tilbrook, who has more than earned his place at pop’s top table as one of our most cherished Songwriters, singers and guitarists, not to mention an in-demand and endlessly endearing live performer.
