Rock 'N' Horsepower Presents: A Tribute to Brian Jones

Rock 'N' Horsepower Presents: A Tribute to Brian Jones

Hurtwood Park Polo Club, Surrey - Saturday 17th August - Supporting The Racehorse Sanctuary and The David Lynch Foundation UK

 
On the 17th August 2019 an all-star lineup of artists are heading to Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Surrey to host an eclectic night of live music, in tribute to former Rolling Stone, the late Brian Jones, to mark 50 years since his passing. 

 

The event will be hosted by Donovan, his wife Linda Leitch and Kenney Jones. They will be joined by family, friends, and Brian’s musical peers.

 

As the founding member of the Rolling Stones, Brian Jones left an indelible mark on music; he formed the Rolling Stones and set them on the road to stardom. Jones is known for having created a style of guitar playing that would become a Rolling Stones trademark sound, referred to by Keith Richards as the “ancient art of weaving” where both guitar players play rhythm and lead parts together.

 

Jones also played many other instruments - including the dulcimer, autoharp, sitar and organ - and can be heard performing on many early Rolling Stones songs, as well as with Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles.

 

“Means a lot to me to be a part of this amazing tribute to Brian Jones. I did a few sessions with him, what I will always remember about him was being a nice guy and he spoke with such a deep voice. He created a few of the most memorable songs of that time and to this day. I am looking forward to playing a few of those tunes along with a few familiar Jones Gang tracks. “ Kenney Jones
