Premier rock ‘n’ roll legend Joe Brown has gone from strength to strength as his contemporary achievements continue to gather momentum.

Joe’s Very Best Of album achieved Gold Record Status, staying eight weeks in the Top 20. In the same year, his 50th anniversary was celebrated with a wonderful sell-out show at the Royal Albert Hall. His new Ukulele Album caused a similar stir internationally and broke new territory in the download market, where he is now a Spotify Legend.

Joe continues to break box office records and recently received the coveted MOJO Outstanding Contribution To Music Award, as well as a much deserved MBE.

Joe won over a whole new generation of fans after performing on Later With Jools Holland and closing the show at the Concert For George Harrison. Those who witnessed his critically acclaimed set at Glastonbury Festival or have previously caught him on tour will already know what a terrific live talent he is.

In 2017, Joe broke tradition and toured without a band, only taking US legend Henry Gross along. Their Just Joe double CD release and two tours they undertook together in 2017 and 2018 both broke new ground. They were rapturously received by audiences who came in record numbers to confirm that as a raconteur, Joe is second to none, and as a performer he is comfortable both solo or with a band.

For this tour, however, Joe now has an eclectic new band with a different line up, including fiddle virtuoso Tom Leary, ace bass player Andy Crowdy and Joe’s twenty-seven year stalwart band member: drummer, percussionist and singer Phil Capaldi.

Joe, who now splits his time between the UK and Nashville, combines together timeless classics, rockabilly, gospel, country, bluegrass and rock ‘n’ roll, which are all interwoven with his effervescent delivery and humorous reminiscences. This sensational musical journey is not to be missed!
