Famous London Venue to close

I fell in love with JoAnne Kelly in the 60s. She was clearly one of the best
white female acoustic blues players of the time, Bonnie Raitt being another.
There's a film out there, or it may be a TV show, with her and Mick Jagger
that I remember seeing back then. I found a CD of her recently and I was
surprisingly disappointed. I don't know if it is because my taste has
changed or because it was not representative of her talent.
