Jon Cleary Returns to Cranbrook

Experience the soulful rhythms of an OC and Grammy Award-winning musician

Old Cranbrookian and Grammy Award-winning musician Jon Cleary is set to perform at Queens Hall Theatre in Cranbrook, marking a notable return to his hometown. This event offers a unique opportunity for locals and visitors alike to experience the rich musical talent of one of their own. Cleary, known for his deep roots in jazz and blues, has a connection to Cranbrook that spans his formative years and education, attending Colliers Green Primary School, Angley Secondary and Cranbrook School.

Cleary's musical career began early, influenced heavily by his uncle's collection of American R&B records. This early exposure led him to pursue music professionally from the age of 14, eventually moving to New Orleans, where he became a fixture in the local music scene. His accolades include a Grammy for his album "Go Go Juice" and he is revered for his ability to blend traditional R&B with modern influences.

The upcoming performance at Queens Hall Theatre, a venue praised for its superb acoustics, is scheduled for 5th September 2024. Doors will open at 7:00 PM, with the performance commencing at 7:30 PM. Tickets are available for £30, with a booking fee applicable.

This concert is a chance to see Cleary in a setting that has shaped much of his early life and musical inspiration. For tickets and more information, visit the Queens Hall Theatre website. Don't miss this rare opportunity to witness a local legend live in Cranbrook.
