Following the launch of his third studio album and a starring role in Kevin Spacey’s High Society, Joe Stilgoe will be setting out on his debut UK tour this autumn.
He will perform at the White Rock Theatre on Monday October 12.
New Songs for Old Souls: Live will see Joe perform songs from the album, plus his inimitable takes on jazz standards and classics from the 50s to the present day. It promises to be a unique and extraordinary evening for music lovers of all ages.
Joe is described as the renaissance man of modern jazz - he has twice topped the UK jazz chart, featured on many radio programmes including six appearances on Friday Night is Music Night on BBC Radio 2, The Horne Section on BBC Radio 4, In Tune, Loose Ends and The Chris Evans Breakfast Show among many others. He has played all the major international jazz festivals, had two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and appears regularly at Ronnie Scott’s and Crazy Coqs in London.
Joe has been starring in his first major West End stage role in High Society at London’s Old Vic Theatre. Directed by Olivier Award-winning Maria Friedman, he performed in a role specially created for him. He will also be the featured guest on Leroy Jones’ tour this autumn.
