Premier rock ‘n’ roll legend Joe Brown has gone from strength to strength as his contemporary achievements continued to gather momentum.
His ‘Very Best Of’ album achieved Gold Record Status and was on the UK charts for eight weeks staying four weeks in the Top 20 and in the same year his 50th anniversary was celebrated with a wonderful sell-out show at the Royal Albert Hall and his new Ukulele Album caused a similar stir although branching out internationally and broke new territory for Joe in the download market where he is now a Spotify Legend.
He has continued to break box office records and recently received MOJO magazine’s coveted Outstanding Contribution To Music Award as well as a much deserved MBE.
Joe won over a whole new generation of fans performing on Later With Jools Holland and playing his part closing the show at the Concert For George Harrison. You may have witnessed his critically acclaimed set at Glastonbury Festival or caught him on tour. If you have you’ll already know just what a terrific live talent he is.
In 2017 Joe broke with tradition and toured without a band just taking US Legend Henry Gross along. The two tours and Just Joe Double CD release both broke new ground and 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 just as comfortable solo as with a band.
Joe has a new band for this tour however, more eclectic and with a different line up to before including among others Fiddle virtuoso Tom Leary, Ace Bass player Andy Crowdy and Joe’s 27 year stalwart band member, drummer, percussionist and singer Phil Capaldi.
