Jon Wilks + The Choco Las

Event ended

Jon Wilks + The Choco Las

From GBP 11.00



Mar 14 2020 19:30 - 22:30


Next up in Dorking is acclaimed folk singer and guitarist Jon Wilks! Jon opened for our very first event in Oct 2018, and much to our delight is now returning to Dorking, this time as the headline act. "One of the best of the New Wave of Folk Blokes," (fRoots Mag), Jon mainly performs folk songs that have originated from Birmingham, where he grew up. He has carried out extensive research into the old songs and singers himself; this suits Jon having been a journalist in a previous life, and he is adept at communicating the humour and interest within the songs. This is always well-received by audiences including people who are new to this kind of music. “Jon’s passion informs his live shows, the songs liberally sprinkled with anecdotes, humour and history, his singing and personality hugely engaging.” (Mike Davies, reviewer and Alternative Roots presenter).

Listen to Jon's Spotify channel here, and Youtube channel here

Supporting Jon is local indie folk band, The Choco Las. A love of chocolate and three part harmonies brought twins Jake & Luke and friend Bryony together to form The Choco La’s. Hailing from the same tiny Surrey village, they blend folk and pop, swapping instruments and all taking lead vocals. As well as writing their own songs, they will be singing some traditional folk songs - awesome!
