Shrewsbury School

An Evening with Joe Stilgoe (Maidment Auditorium)

Saturday 12 January 2019 at 19:30

Kindly sponsored by Hambrook House

"Amazing" - Tim Minchin

"He writes the songs, sings them, plays them and creates the arrangements - all with a panache that leaves the rest of us bug-eyed." - The Observer

"An internationally acclaimed singer, pianist and songwriter. Joe Stilgoe’s mixture of impeccable musicianship, breath-taking theatricality and sparkling repartee makes for an evening of 'sheer joy'." (**** The Scotsman).

His live shows have seen him described as a "musical virtuoso" (The Independent) and "truly remarkable" (Sir Michael Parkinson), and he is taking the UK by storm.

Joe Stilgoe 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 the legendary Ronnie Scott’s in London.

Joe’s previous concerts at Shrewsbury School have proved a huge success and sold out quickly – so early booking is recommended!

Tickets £20 to include a drink in the interval - available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/shrewsburyschool or 01743 280812.
