On the penultimate show of the series, Jools Holland is joined by Ronnie Wood featuring his Wild Five Band, Imelda May, Lewis Capaldi, Foals, Sudan Archives and Nifüla Yanya.
Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood makes his debut on the show who along with co-hosting the Friday night’s hour-long episode with esteemed Irish singer Imelda May will be performing with his Wild Five Band. Ronnie first met Imelda when she snuck into a Dublin club and joined him onstage to sing. They will perform tracks from his latest album, Mad Lad: A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry, the first in a trilogy paying homage to his musical heroes.
Scottish chart topper Lewis Capaldi also joins the bill with songs from his album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, which is currently the biggest selling debut of 2019. The singer-songwriter is famed not only for his self-depreciating ballads, but also his witty banter, hilarious social media presence and unrivalled collection of sunglasses.
It’s been a busy year for Foals who make a very welcome return to the studio. The Oxford rockers have released two albums in 2019, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part One and its sequel Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part Two. Alongside their prolific release schedule, they’ve undertaken a world tour and surprised fans in June 2019 with a secret set on the Glastonbury Park Stage.
Completing the line-up this week are two women making their debuts. Singer and songwriter Nifüla Yanya, recently released her debut album Miss Universe, which showcases her unique vocals and blend of genres. She grew up in West London of Turkish, Irish and Bajan heritage and began making up songs in her head from the age of six.
Plus, self-taught violinist, singer and songwriter Sudan Archives makes her TV debut. The LA based and Ohio born musician’s distinct performing style combines violin, vocals and loop pedals taking inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers and West African beats. Her 12 track debut, Athena, was whittled down from the epic 60 tracks it started at.
