The 27 The New Year’s Eve Music Extravaganza edition will be held tonight and will offer people a live musical enjoyment
Jools Hollands’ Hootenanny is one thing we can count on to continue this New Year’s Eve with the host and his musical guests as usual and entertain as we near midnight
But if you’re wondering how he’s not fed up with Jan. Spending December introducing his annual hootenanny after 27 years is because he doesn’t
It turns out that Jools Holland, Mr. Silvester himself, doesn’t count down to midnight with us – at least not live
The party show will be taped in early December as the guests and Jools himself likely have different plans for the actual NYE
This year’s Hootenanny is likely to veto due to the coronavirus pandemic, the leisurely chats with music legends at the piano, and the audience is unlikely to get Auld Lang Syne out of the way at midnight
In fact, Sing-a-Longs will be out of the question at all, as there was actually no audience when the recording was made for safety reasons
The two-hour and five-minute show will air from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on BBC Two, tonight – Dec. December
Tomorrow (1 Jan) on BBC Two lets you catch up on Jools’ annual Hootenanny Best Bits of All Time at 10:45 p.m.
Jools and his orchestra in this year’s studio include Celeste, Sir Tom Jones, Michael Kiwanuka, Roisin Murphy, Rick Wakeman, Ruby Turner, Chris Difford and the 1 Batallion Scots Guards
2020 Mercury Prize winner Michael Kiwanuka plays a song from his award-winning self-titled album and records a song written by his idol Bill Withers
BBC’s Sound of 2020, Celeste, serenades us with a song or two with her infectious, soulful vocals.The legendary Sir Tom Jones returns to the show with his inimitable baritone voice and a good dose of 1950s rock’n’roll Irish singer-songwriter and formerly half of Moloko, Roisin Murphy, returns after appearing on the Millennium Hootenanny two decades ago
Songwriter, producer and keyboardist Rick Wakeman accompanies Jools to a piano duet to serve up a good helping of boogie-woogie, and Hootenanny Queen Ruby Turner lifts the roof
Jools also looks back on some of the incredible hootenanny performances from the archive, including Jamiroquai, Rudimental and Ella Eyre, Madness, ABC and Aloe Blacc
