About Jools Holland & his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra 

A sublimely talented pianist from an early age, Jools Holland has combined a prolific recording and touring career as a band leader, alongside highly successful roles in broadcasting. Jools will be performing with his 19-piece Rhythm & Blues Orchestra who are famed for their unique interpretations and original works. 

Accompanying Jools with the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra will be the supremely talented Ruby Turner, with her breath-taking gospel, soul and rhythm & blues vocals, Louise Marshall, with her beautiful soul and jazz tones, as well as original Squeeze member Gilson Lavis on drums.

They will be joined by special guest and BRIT Award winner Eddi Reader. Jools and Eddi have been collaborating musically for more than 20 years and Jools has previously described her as, “one of (his) favourite singers of all time.”
