Despite the impression given by the inclusion of the large image of Wilko Johnson on promotional banners and other publicity for this year’s Village Green Festival, we feel it prudent to point out in case of fans being misled that Wilko is NOT actually appearing at the festival. (The picture was taken at Village Green several years ago.)
We are assured all promotional materials featuring his image are being retracted in order to avoid any further confusion.
You can also hear Wilko talking about his book with Robert Elms on BBC London here, about staying in Europe on The World Tonight here, and don’t miss him on Steve Wright In The Afternoon on BBC Radio 2 on Wednesday 25th May!
Don’t forget Wilko Johnson and the boys will be in Ballyshannon for the Rory Gallagher Festival! The festival itself takes place between 2-5 June and Wilko hits the stage on Saturday 4th at the Big Top.
Wilko Johnson will be making some appearances this summer to discuss and read from his upcoming memoir ‘Don’t You Leave Me Here’ (Little, Brown) – we know many of you have been wondering where and when these events will take place, and many of the festivals have not yet announced their line-ups or further details, so we have to keep schtum until then, BUT here are a few dates to start us off with:
Wilko and the boys will be on the road again in October, playing a selection of UK dates. The fantastic Aaron Keylock will be supporting the band on this run of dates.
