The stories and music from over 50 years in the business - for the first time ever!

So you think you know what Joe Brown’s all about…think again.

It might just be time to re-evaluate because his Autumn tour is definitely something very different. For the first time ever Joe takes to the road by himself.

No band, no supplementary backup musicians, no dancing girls (were there ever) - just Joe Brown, unadulterated, solo, upfront and personal.

Joe Brown MBE is well known for being one of the UK’s original rock ‘n’ roll guitar pioneers. More recently, since The Concert For George, he’s become the leading light and staunch champion of the ukulele. But his history is unique and remarkable.

From the days of music hall and growing up in an East End pub through the skiffle era of Lonnie Donegan then jumping, almost overnight, into rock’n’roll, Joe’s seen it all. Keith Richards respects him, George Harrison loved him, the Beatles supported him, Mark Knopfler plays with him…the man is unique. He’s been a radio star, a TV personality, an actor and, not least, the head of a musical dynasty.

To say this man has a few stories is an understatement. And on this tour he’s going to tell them.

Anecdotes and the odd joke or two will be interspersed with some of the great music that has made Joe such a popular performer today. And if that weren’t enough he’s got an old friend along too.

Special Guest for the night will be guitar maestro Henry Gross. No slouch himself to the odd raconteuring (think Jackie Mason of the beat age and you get the idea), Henry was the lead guitarist, singer and founder of hit US group Sha Na Na. Not only that, he was the youngest musician to appear at Woodstock. To say he’s a superlative musician would be an understatement.

The tour kicks off in October and promises a great – and very entertaining! – night out.
