Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet
Members of Gavin Bryars Ensemble will join with Wesley Stace and his band for a performance of Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet as part of an evening in Wesley’s extraordinary series of cabarets that are held periodically in New York and London, wih a wide and diverse range of guests. For this evening Wesley will have Gavin, Rich Hall, Dave Hall, Linda Lewis, Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), Ian McEwan and others to be announced.
Gavin wrote and recorded an arrangement of Wesley’s Sussex Ghost Story (John Wesley Harding) some years ago. Wesley’s mother Molly was a close friend of Gavin’s when they were both at Kingsway Primary School, and part of a year at Goole Grammar School, in the early 1950s…
