John Jones Interview

John Jones

Paul Johnson and Darren Beech catch up with John Jones after Oysterband closed the Saturday night of New Forest Folk Festival 2019.

We talk about the closing set on the Saturday night, the wonderful crowd singing and how they embraced the show, setting a festival record with the most people standing and making ‘one’ audience.

We discuss the anthem songs like a ‘A River Runs, Everywhere I Go, We Could Leave Right Now’, what effect they have on people and how the audience has come to create the refrain.

John discusses the recent Danish Folk Prize Award and we chat about how the band has been embraced by Europe over the years.

We talk about the June Tabor and Oysterband – ‘Fire and Fleet’ 15 date tour in October and November and John also hints of a new Oysterband song that is due to be released soon based to an Ian Telfer Lyric.
