Folks, I don't know how to tell you how honored I am to get Jonny on stream, or how I convinced him to join in. Maybe it's because we spell our names the same ...
Jonny's a frighteningly good guitarist, and a cracking songwriter to boot. We share a love of the rich history of folk music and old blues and cooking so there's sure to be some good conversation to go along with the music. You do not want to miss this one.
