Jo Harman
Jo Harman, is widely regarded as the most exciting blues/soul/roots artist to emerge in Europe for decades. The Daily Mirror, no less, described her as ‘the finest female soul blues singer in the UK’ and Jo’s 2013 debut album ‘Dirt On My Tongue’ received remarkable critical acclaim and no little commercial success making various of ‘best of’ lists and awards, internationally.
She subsequently signed to V2 (stable mates include Adele, Mumford and Sons, Queens of the Stone Age etc) in Europe and the album entered the Netherlands album charts. Recently, Huey Morgan (Fun Lovin’ Criminals) said on his BBC Radio 2 show ‘Sometimes you hear a singer who leaves you speechless – I am’.

Now with 3 major label deals to her name, Jo’s profile continues to grow internationally: she was one of only 12 (otherwise household name) artists appearing at Parkpop in the Hague, performing to over 300,000 people and in May 2015, Amnesty International headhunted her to perform 3 songs at their prestigious ‘Ambassador for Conscience Awards’ involving Joan Baez and Patti Smith in Berlin.

In summer 2014, Jo released a new album, ‘Jo Harman and Company – Live At The Royal Albert Hall’, recorded by the BBC. She and her band have just received no less than 4 nominations for this year’s British Blues Awards, including best singer (which she won), as well as best songwriter (runner up), in 2014 alone.

Her soul fuelled show ranges from hard driven rock to intimate, heart-warming ballads featuring not only her own emotive song writing but also her personal take on well-known standards.

Not to be missed.

Steve Young is a singer/songwriter & globetrotting session guitarist. After years on the road he has finally released his own blend of Acoustic Country/Pop & Blues. Recent performances at the London C2C Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe, Rhythms Of The World and local events have enthused his ever growing fan base.
