Larmer Tree Festival will welcome Joss Stone to this year’s festival.

The free-spirited Grammy award winning soul diva will be making a special guest appearance to perform with Yes Sir Boss on Thursday 12th July.

The “You Had Me” singer’s gravelly but lustrous vocals will bring an extra treat to an already great evening of entertainment on Thursday as she joins Yes Sir Boss on the Main Stage.

Larmer Tree audiences only have to wait a few weeks to see Joss and her trademark dancing barefoot onstage! Currently gigging with the band in Holland, Joss will be releasing her sixth album The Soul Sessions Volume 2 at the end of July.

The band will be playing at 6.55pm on the Main Larmer Tree Stage and then again at 11.45pm in The Social. The first artists to be signed to Joss’s own record label Stone’d Records, Yes Sir Boss are a playful rootsy ska group from Bristol. Larmer Tree audiences can enjoy their heavy blend of offbeat rhythms and epic riffs, which provide a perfect backing to their catchy lyrics and husky vocals - it’s music guaranteed to get everyone up and moving.

Joss Stone said of Yes Sir Boss’s music: “It’s real party music… you just want to dance and have fun.”

Other headliners over the five day festival are Amadou & Mariam, Jools Holland, Levellers, Roots Manuva, Milton Jones, Stephen K Amos and The Horne Section.
