Jon Sanders and Dave Alley are two musicians at the cutting edge of what's true and great about the world of music today. Having both travelled extensively picking up influences and musical styles along the way, the duo combine their knowledge of music, their talents and chemistry to take the audience with them on a journey into the musical cosmos.

Over the course of a show, Sanders Alley voyage from Eastern Europe to the Middle East, over to Spain, up to the UK & Ireland, across the Americas and onto the Pacific... The driving rhythm and melodic mastery of Jon's renowned bouzouki, guitar and ukulele playing is a show on its own as is Dave's highly expressive blues-inflected slide and finger-picked guitar work, explosive percussion and soulful vocal lines.

Put these ingredients together and the combination soars, ducks and dives through self-penned works such as Jon's 'Pure Afghan' and Dave's 'Dingle Day'. Equally, they may cover works by other artists reworking such classics as Johnny Cash's 'Folsom Prison Blues' or Bob Marley's 'Could You Be Loved'...

This is an act that will alter any preconception you may have of what two musicians can create with their acoustic instruments of choice...
