WIN! Tickets to see Joe Brown play live in Sheffield

Joe Brown
Joe Brown

Joe Brown and his band never fail to put on a good show - and you can find out for youself as we have tickets to be won.

He plays guitar, mandolin, fiddle and ukulele. With an acoustic set and a rousing electric one, he covers the 50-plus years of his career bringing it bang up to date with the ukulele songs featured on his current CD The Ukulele Album. Joe can justifiably lay claim to being the current King of the Ukulele. He has been cited by some of the world’s biggest rock performers as a world class player. The ukulele has been an instrument Joe has always loved and played. In 1963 it even got him into trouble.

Joe was one of the very first artists to have a record banned by the BBC - his recording of the old George Formby song With My Little Ukulele In My Hand was deemed way too risqué. In 2002 he brought the house down as he closed The Concert For George with I’ll See You In My Dreams, released as a single on 23rd December and in 2009 he launched his own Joe Brown ukulele Signature Series. Joe is joined on the album not only by daughter Sam and her ukulele pupils but also his four strong band, including his producer son Pete.

Joe comes to Sheffield City Hall on 15th March. Tickets are £26 and are available by calling 0114 2 789789 or visiting www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk.
