Joe Stilgoe is an acclaimed singer, pianist and songwriter with a rich musical

heritage (his father is lyricist and entertainer Richard; his mother the opera singer Annabel

Hunt).

His live shows are a mixture of virtuosic musicianship, breathtaking theatricality and

witty interaction with the audience, combining on the spot improvisation and the quickest of wits.

New Songs for Old Souls: Live will see Joe perform songs from his new album, plus his inimitable takes

on jazz standards and classics from the 50s to the present day. It promises to be a unique and

extraordinary evening for music lovers of all ages. He has appeared as featured soloist with orchestras including BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, The Northern Sinfonia, Lahti Symphony, Finland and the RTE Orchestra

in Dublin. In 2011 he made his solo debut at the Edinburgh Fringe where his show One Hour!

was a sell-out and garnered much critical acclaim (5 stars in The Scotsman) and he has just

returned from another sell out Edinburgh run and another clutch of top reviews (a second 5

star Scotsman review being the rarest of accolades) for his show Songs On Film, which first

originated at the London Jazz Festival in 2013.

Joe brings his latest tour ‘New Songs for Old Souls’ to the White Rock Theatre for a one off

intimate show in the Sussex Hall on October 12.
