ORIGINAL rock guitar pioneer, ukulele maestro and legendary consummate musician Joe Brown brings his live show to the Queen’s Theatre in Barnstaple on Saturday.

Joe has performed as a rock and roll singer and guitarist for five decades and needs little introduction for many.

During his earlier career he was supported by a little known band from Liverpool, going on to become lifelong friends with one of them, a certain George Harrison.

So when Joe Brown plays live it really is something special. Electric guitar and acoustic, fiddle, mandolin, ukulele and even the odd bit of banjo come into play with an ease and accomplishment others simply aspire to.

Recipient of a Mojo Award for music and an MBE, Joe has won many awards over his illustrious career and regularly plays festivals across the country.

Always busy, this spring sees him on the road again. His latest album The Ukulele Album met with serious acclaim and his live uke versions of classics such as Ace of Spades, Mr Blue Skies and Pinball Wizard are a sight to behold.

His Queen’s Theatre show starts at 7.45pm and tickets are available from the box office on 01271 324242 or visit www.northdevontheatres.org.uk
