The Lyric Hammersmith is pleased to welcome Joe Stilgoe and his big band who take up residency at the Lyric for three nights of seasonal mayhem, mischief and romance on Monday 5, 12 and 19 of December 2016. Tickets go on sale today at 10am.
Mixing incredible new songs with his inimitable take on favourite yuletide classics, Joe and his scintillating band promise a warm, wild and wickedly funny Christmas cracker that will appeal to all ages.
This trio of unique concerts comes hot on the heels of Joe recording his own BBC Radio 2 special at the Lyric in July, his 2016 UK Tour and his highly anticipated fourth studio album Songs on Film: The Sequel which is released on 5 August on Linn Records.
Joe Stilgoe has twice topped the UK jazz chart, been featured on countless radio programmes for Radio 2, 3 & 4, presented on BBC4, Radio 2 and JazzFM, has written award-winning songs, starred in The Old Vic’s 2015 production of High Society, and he has an established international concert career, collaborating with John Wilson, Curtis Stigers, Claire Martin, the RLPO and BBC Concert Orchestra among many others. He has had sell out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and is a regular favourite at the world-famous home of jazz, Ronnie Scott’s.
