Following the impressive critical reaction to their sell out duo show in Netherlands last year where Jo is signed to V2 records (Adele, Mumfords etc), they enjoyed the experience so much that she will be playing a limited number of voice and piano shows in the UK at selected venues.
This very special, intimate, show will feature soulful, compelling performances featuring not only ‘bare-to-the-bone’ versions of Jo’s own songs but also her own take on songs that mean something special to her.
Jo Harman is, of course, an award winning vocalist who has performed at some of Europe’s most prestigious venues, including performing for, and with, the likes of Patti Smith and Joan Baez in Berlin. The Daily Mirror called her ‘the finest female soul blues vocalist in the UK’ and Huey Morgan said on his Radio 2 programme ‘sometimes you hear a voice that leaves you speechless…I am’. She is widely recognised as one of the (if not the) finest vocalists to emerge in Europe over recent years, and has the CV, and industry admirers to back it up.
In this duo show, Jo really takes you on a journey and, if the Dutch shows were anything to go by, be prepared not to leave the show dry eyed.
‘The room is quiet and every cough is one too many. Emotions are running high. The audience gives the duo a standing ovation. The applause continues and they return it the stage to perform the encore ‘Cold Heart’. With a big grin on her face Harman leaves the stage. The CDs and EPs are in high demand. In the spring of 2016 Jo Harman will return to the stage with a pianist to accompany her and can also easily fill large halls. She is simply great, perhaps even most impactful, in even the most minimalist of settings’. .3voor12 (Netherlands)
