HE’S played guitar with greats such as Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran and Johnny Cash.

And rock ‘n’ roll veteran Joe Brown will take to the Alban Arena stage again in St Albans on Friday at 7.30pm.

Joe and his five-piece band, including his son and record producer Pete Brown, will be on stage all evening and the musical styles incorporated into his new show break more boundaries and are as unique as the man himself.

One of the first UK session men, his early career highlights include playing alongside Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash and other US stars when they came over to Europe.

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.

Tickets cost £23 and £25. Call the Alban Arena box office on 01727 844488 or book online at
