Its part of his annual autumn/winter tour which this year covers 32 dates across the UK and Ireland.
In more than 30 years of presenting, Holland – who grew up listening to his parents’ jazz and blues records – has interviewed and performed with countless music industry greats (indeed, Holland holds the unique status of having played with musicians who had success in every decade of the 20th century).
His Later… with Jools Holland show is now the longest-running music programme on the box, and what New Year’s Eve night in would be complete without his Hootenanny countdown? Jools and the band will be joined on stage at the Corn Exchange by the golden- voiced Ruby Turner and soul singer Louise Marshall, plus original Squeeze drummer Gilson Lavis.
Don’t miss it – 1 November, 7.30pm; tickets £38.50. Plus, the next day, Holland’s former bandmates from Squeeze, Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook, make a visit to the same venue. See them live at 7.30pm, £27.50-£40.
