Joe set to bring timeless tunes to the Black Country
11:02am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
ROCK and roll hero Joe Brown is making a date in the Black County for a show packed with timeless tunes.
After celebrating his 50th anniversary sell-out tour in 2008 Joe continues to perform a full touring schedule and the eternally youthful septuagenarian is heading for a two-hour show at Bilston's Robin 2 on Bank Holiday Monday (August 26).
The singer, who has an MBE and MOJO magazine’s Outstanding Contribution To Music Award among his list of achievements, can genuinely claim to have been part of the British popular music scene since it began.
During his early career he played as a session guitarist for visiting american stars including Johnny Cash and Gene Vincent.
He later released his own chart-topping records and was supported at shows by greats including The Beatles before becoming a regular TV and radio show host.
In the 1980s he missed out on hosting the successful TV quiz The Price is Right after executives chose Leslie Crowther instead.
The more recent past has seen continued career highlights including a critically acclaimed set at Glastonbury Festival and a performance at a concert at the Royal Albert Hall dedicated to the life and work of his great friend George Harrison.
His show at the Robin 2 will feature music from a range of styles including rockabilly, gospel, country, folk, ukulele and electric rock n roll.
