Jagger’s rolling up to play Stoke Row gig

IT can’t be easy being Mick Jagger’s younger brother and succeeding independently as a recording artist.

IT can’t be easy being Mick Jagger’s younger brother and succeeding independently as a recording artist.

But Chris Jagger has achieved exactly this, drawing huge audiences across the globe as a performer and successful hit writer in his own right.

Chris is also part of Sir Rod Stewart’s recently formed Sixties and Seventies supergroup The Faces with The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood.

On Wednesday (July 13) Chris performs in the intimate surroundings of the Crooked Billet, Stoke Row, with his rootsy bluesy acoustic trio.

Crooked Billet chef proprietor Paul Clerehugh said: “Enjoy the classic Jagger vocals — the same droll style as brother Mick — sweet and sour harmonies, guitar, blues harp, fiddle, accordion and upright double bass. A blues rock and roll English Ceilidh band that makes you want to drink scrumpy and stomp.



“On a scale of one to 10 the Crooked Billet scores them 11 and this is always one of our most popular music evenings.

“Chris has collaborated with an eclectic selection of artists including Al Stewart, Ian Dury, Cat Stevens and the Rolling Stones — whom Chris has performed live with, recorded with and written for.

“Indeed, his brother provided vocals on Chris’s latest album, Concertina Jack. Speak to Chris nicely and you might get a backstage pass for the next British Rolling Stones show!”

Gig-goers might also be intrigued by the possibility of an “extra special guest” putting in an appearance.

The Crooked Billet will be serving its full regular menu on the night. A £15 music cover charge applies.

For tickets and table reservations call the Crooked Billet on (01491) 681048.
