It’s become something of a tradition to post my personal highlights from Jools Holland’s Annual Hootenanny here. I was very impressed with this year’s show. Lots of very good performances (and one or two dodgy ones!)
For entertainment value I thought that The Dubliners and The Hives (Tick, Tick, Boom) were great fun.
I was completely stunned by Petula Clark’s rendition of Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy‘ (especially after her earlier performances!)
Emeli Sande was consistentnly good, and I thought her version of Love Me or Leave Me was fantastic.
But my favourite performance of the show came from Lianne La Havas – check it out for yourself.
