Musical master of ceremonies Jools Holland and his much-loved Rhythm & Blues Orchestra return with their Autumn/Winter UK tour. Renowned as one of the UK’s most popular tours, now in its 24th year, the shows will this year feature many special guests.
Accompanying Jools with the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra on their annual excursion around the UK will be the supremely talented Ruby Turner, with her breath-taking gospel, soul and rhythm & blues vocals, Louise Marshall, with her beautiful soul and jazz tones, as well as original Squeeze member and powerhouse Gilson Lavis on drums.
Additional special guest will be BRIT Award winner Eddi Reader. Jools has previously described Eddi Reader as, “One of his favourite singers of all time.” Jools and Eddi have been collaborating musically for more than 20 years, with highlights that include their single ‘Waiting Game’, which Jools co-wrote with Chris Difford, as well as featuring in the 2009 Richard Linklater film ‘Me and Orson Welles’ and also the soundtrack. Eddi also famously harmonised with Annie Lennox whilst touring with Eurythmics as well as leading vocals in the band Fairground Attraction, reaching the top of the UK charts in 1988 with single ‘Perfect’.
