Joe Kelly

After spending years living out of various cars, vans and caravans, touring the UK, Australia and New Zealand with just a broken-necked guitar and a battered case of harmonicas, Joe Kelly found shelter in an old Victorian police station just in time to ride out the storm that was the covid-19 pandemic. 

It was in this time that Joe was able to focus on consolidating the vast wealth of songs written in transit into an album that could encapsulate the spirit of those years on the road, the outcome being debut album ‘World On Fire‘, released in October 2022. Whether with his band The Royal Pharmacy, or playing solo, armed with his acoustic guitar and harmonicas, Joe is always a captivating and engaging performer full of gusto, energy and passion.
