Many people from Churches in the Nottingham and Lincolnshire areas will remember Alwyn Wall from the early roots of Christian Rock music in the 60s and 70s
Alwyn is an “ex-pat” of Sutton-in-Ashfield in Nottinghamshire. During the 70’s, Alwyn and his long time friend Malcolm Wild, began travelling over England, Europe and the States, releasing two studio albums 'Fools Wisdom' and 'Wildwall'. It was at this time that Malcolm and Alwyn, as a gospel duo, found themselves in the US to experience, and be a part of, the revival that took place there in the early 70's. This revival became known at that time as the 'Jesus Movement'. Alwyn went on to form the 'Alwyn Wall Band' and release another album 'The Prize'. Alwyn was later invited to the States to be pastor of Calvary Chapel Vero Beach in Florida. After about a year of ministry Alwyn returned to the United Kingdom, unable to stay in the States because of visa difficulties. It was at this point Alwyn was asked to become the worship leader at a church plant that was to be established in Westminster, London. Alwyn agreed to come alongside and help with the work there, then after a couple of years was asked to take on the role of being the senior pastor. Since that time Alwyn has been the pastor of Calvary Chapel Westminster; a church of something like 600 people.
The current Alwyn Wall band members are as follows: The legendary Norman Barratt – Lead Guitar + Vocals, Jan Wall – Acoustic Guitar + Vocals, Chris Gaskell – Keyboards + Vocals, Ray Stewart – Bass Guitar and Tom Hooper – Drums. This has been the line up for about the past 10 years now. The band’s appearances in the UK have been very rare over recent years as they have been mostly performing in the USA. The concert at Lincoln on 27th February 2010 is the first widely publicized opportunity for fans and other interested parties from the UK to see this superb band. It is also a chance for many to take a trip down memory lane and relive the sounds of their “youth” – groovy baby!!!
