A Jools Holland tour would not be complete without the spectacular vocal power of Ruby Turner, the soul tones of Louise Marshall and the tireless drums of Gilson Lavis who has played alongside Jools for 40 years, along with the inimitable musicianship and exuberant sound of the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.
The tour follows the release of Jools’ latest album ‘Pianola. Piano & Friends’, which features David Gilmour, Sir Tom Jones, Jamie Cullum, Joe Bonamassa.

He has performed with musicians who have achieved success in every decade of the 20th Century.
A popular television personality, Jools has filmed53 series of Later… and 25 Hootenanny shows.
The keyboard maestro was awarded an OBE in 2003 for his services to the British music industry.
