More recently, you may have seen Joe performing on Later With Jools Holland or witnessed his critically acclaimed set at Glastonbury.
After more than 50 years in the music business, Joe recently received MOJO magazine’s coveted outstanding contribution to music award.
His new CD, The Ukulele Album, has been well received and is packed with timeless classics, rockabilly, gospel, country, folk and rock ‘n’ roll, all interwoven with Joe’s effervescent delivery and humorous reminiscences.
