In a career lasting 40 years Joan Armatrading has supported local talent throughout
On her tours around the world Joan has always tried to get a local artist on to the bill in the many different cities she performs in. In 2012 Joan will invite 52 local artists to perform on the bill with her in their home city in the UK.
Chris Wood is Joan’s Special guest on her 2012 UK tour but at each venue on this 52 date UK tour a local artist will perform for 15 minutes before Chris Wood. That’s 52 singer/songwriters who will not only get to perform on the night in their city but, we have lots of other exciting things planned so visit this website often to see what happens over the coming months.
There are four Scottish dates on Joan’s 2012 tour: 28th Oct at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall; 29th Oct at Perth’s Concert Hall; 30th October at the Music Hall in Aberdeen and 1st November 2012 at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh.
To be considered for a 15 minute set at one of the venues, send Joan two mp3’s. One should be an original song and the other should be a cover version performed on piano or guitar. Email your songs to: email@example.com
The four Scottish selections will also be offered a live session on Celtic Music Radio!
Closing date is 25th November 2011. Best of luck, and tell Joan Celtic Music Radio sent you!
