Born and raised in the Black Country, Joanne was originally discovered by Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart as a 16 year old guitar prodigy. Through hard work and near-constant touring, she is now one of the hottest young names on the British Blues circuit. She is admired and respected by many leading blues guitarists including Joe Bonamassa.

Joanne was voted ‘Best British Female Vocalist’ at the British Blues Awards in 2010 and 2011. Her current album, Almost Always Never, was helmed by the legendary record producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Patty Griffin) in Austin, Texas. Joanne was invited as special guest to Annie Lennox performing at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert in June 2012.

Every now and then an artist comes along that blows you away and Aaron Keylock has fast been cementing his reputation as one of the most exciting and brightest young talent’s in the UK.

This event was due to take place at The Met but due to our refurbishment will now take place at The Elizabethan Suite. For more information please click here
