WIDELY regarded as one of Europe’s finest ever blues voices, Jo Harman has announced that she is playing at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis as part of a major tour.
She makes sincere and heartfelt music and The Mirror proclaimed her as the “UK’s finest female soul blues voice” who, according to Classic Rock, writes “lip-biting beautiful songs”.
Award-winning singer-songwriter Rag’n’Bone Man recently took to social media to proclaim her “one of this country’s finest talents” and soul super star Michael McDonald advised “hearing her cover one of my songs was a spiritual experience”.
Jo recently released her second studio album ‘People We Album’ to great reviews. The lead single ‘When We Were Young’ was play-listed on BBC Radio 2 and made many ‘best of’ lists for 2017.
This summer, Jo sang on ‘Reach Out (I’ll Be There)’ with Motown legend Lamont Dozier from his ‘Re-imagination’ album, which also features Gregory Porter, Graham Nash, Todd Rundgren, and Rumer. A recent highlight was performing with Joan Baez at Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience Awards.
Jo will be supported at the Marine Theatre by Lyme Regis’ own Joanna Cooke, whose successes include support sets for Paloma Faith, Rag‘n’Bone Man and Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, and national BBC radio airplay.
The gig will be held on Thursday, May 9 with the bar opening at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start.
Tickets cost £12.50 in advance or £15 on the door, with 10% off for Theatre Friends.
