With every tour you are guaranteed a fantastic mix of magical old favourites plus brand new songs to fall in love with. Joan is as happy to play Love and Affection, Willow, Drop The Pilot and Me, Myself I, as the audience is to hear them. She is equally happy and proud of how her audiences embrace hearing new and exciting compositions, like Into The Blues (debuted at No. 1 in the US Blues chart 2007) and This Charming Life (debuted at No. 1 in Amazon download chart 2010).
During her long and illustrious career Joan has been successful in all musical genres, Pop, Blues, Folk, Reggae, and Jazz. Her audience, newly attracted or long term fans are as loyal to her as she is faithful to them.
The 2012 tour will see Joan performing Love and Affection amongst many other firm favourites, and also showcase songs from her brand new CD due for release in time for this mammoth tour.
Joan is recognised as one of the World's leading singer, songwriter and guitarists.
