An intimate soulful performer, an acoustic guitar sensation, and winner of three New Zealand Music Awards Paul Ubana Jones was born in London to a Yorkshire mother and a Nigerian father. Paul was playing the guitar by the age of eleven. Four decades as a professional and nine albums later he continues to perform throughout New Zealand, Australia, Europe, and the USA.

Paul has shared the stage and toured with the best: BB King, Bob Dylan, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Crowded House, Tuck and Patti… He has delighted festival audiences at the Dublin Blues Festival, Byron bay Blues festival, Vancouver Island Folk Festival, Blues at Bridgetown and many others in Europe.

Paul performed for us at the 2019 Revitalize event, and enjoyed it so much he wanted to be involved again.

Paul will also be holding singer/songwriter workshops on the Saturday. Entry is the super low festival price of $20. This will help ensure the workshops are kept small for more individual attention to those that seriously want to write songs.
