John Jones of Oysterband and his Reluctant Ramblers will be journeying through the Dales.

John will be combining his two passions of walking and music on his ‘Spine of England’ tour, taking in the Rutland Arms, Bakewell on May 25 and finishing in the ballroom at the Fishpond in Matlock Bath on May 26.

The tour will take in some of the most iconic walking destinations in the country, such as Derbyshire’s Kinder Scout, the Hope Valley, and Saddleworth Moor.

Joining John along the way will be a changing company of well-known folk musicians and friends and he will also be accompanied by some excellent young folk and acoustic musicians local to various areas.

The Fishpond will be the final show on the tour and the band will be supported by the recently nominated Radio Two Young Folk Musician, David Gibb. Tickets cost £8 and are available at the venue or Matlock Music Shop or online at
