Jan Akkerman


Having gained international fame with Focus from 1969 to 1976, recording a number of breakout albums and being voted world’s best guitarist by Melody Maker in 1973, his music has also been featured on endless Films and TV shows including Hot Fuzz (2007), Robocop (2014), Baby Driver (2017) and Nike adverts.

With Focus he toured with Frank Zappa and Yes, and is lauded by his peers:

‘How can you forget a guy like Jan….the nights we played together were great, I wish I could play the things that he did’. B.B King

‘An almost perfectly formed musician’, Peter Banks (YES)

‘He’s totally a hero of mine, there are some people in life that no matter how old you are, you feel nervous if you meet someone, he’s one of those,  a real role model’ Brian May

Join Jan for an evening of authentic musicianship and enjoy fresh tracks from his 2019 studio album ‘Close Beauty’, his first since 2011 and considered one of his most varied and impressive works, incorporating acoustic and electric compositions. It’s sure to be a night to remember.
