Music

Legendary English blues singer, bandleader and songwriter John Mayall, whose musical career spans over sixty years and who is known by many as the father of the British blues boom, returns to Budapest and will take the stage at the Akvárium Klub on March 19, the website of the club reported.

Born in Macclesfield in 1933 to musician parents, Mayall has been making records since the 1960s, when he founded John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, a band through which the cream of British blues musicians passed through over the years, among them the guitarists Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor, and bassists Jack Bruce and John McVie.

The Budapest concert will feature guitarist Carolyn Wonderland, bassist Greg Rzab and drummer Jay Davenport, all permanent members of the current John Mayall Band. The musical legend, who turned 85 last November, is also releasing a new album, entitled “Nobody Told Me.”

The concert will be in the main hall of the Akvárium; doors open at 7 p.m. Entry to the event is HUF 9,900. For information about tickets, visit the website of the club.
