Catch unique pianist and entertainer Joe Stilgoe at the start of his Songs On Film tour when he performs at Folkington Manor near Polegate on Friday June 10.
As heard on BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night Is Music Night and on TV presenting on BBC Young Musician Of the Year on the 13th of May, and performing during the Oliver Awards, the internationally acclaimed musician and actor comes to our area at the start of his new tour.
A consistent sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Joe and his remarkable trio of musicians are set to bring their tribute to 100 years of cinema across the UK, including a one-off performance at London Wonderground and a 25-date run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August at Assembly Checkpoint.
Joe said: “It was a wonderful and humbling experience to perform at the Royal Opera House with past winners at the 2016 Olivier Awards. As well as songwriting assignments for Samantha Barks and a new West End play, recording a new album, and trying to convince my one-year-old daughter that playing the piano is a better thing to do than watching Peppa Pig, the rest of my year will be spent taking my show Sings On Film around the country for its debut UK tour. I’ve tried to make this show feel like the best cinema trip there ever was, and for film geeks like me it’s a chance to spot every reference, while for normal people it will be a great ride through all the greatest musical moments put to film.”
