John Jones, the charismatic lead singer of award-winning Oysterband, has been an avid walker for many years.
In John Jones and the Reluctant Ramblers website JJ explains the idea behing the walks. I always love how some people can make things happen...
“I had the crazy idea of walking to gigs a few years ago and somehow managed to persuade reluctant musicians and a smiling but sceptical agency to help. Rushing from gig to gig, crowded motorways, increased stress levels and time wasted staring out of tour bus windows at inviting hills rolling by just made me think: walking 20 miles, setting up in a pub, church, canalside…anywhere…was worth trying as a much-needed alternative. It caught people’s imagination...”
