Tom Jones is set to appear at this year's Latitude Festival with a special performance on Thursday July 15th.

The appearance with his band will see Tom performing songs from his forthcoming album Praise & Blame at midnight in the secluded and magical setting of The Woods.

This landmark album comes in the singer’s 70th year and is a glowing achievement in what has been a ground-breaking, unpredictable roller-coaster of a 45-year career.  The songs from Praise & Blame (released 26th July on Island Records), are from a repertoire that includes American traditional, gospel and country, seeing Tom going back to his roots and creating a truly evocative musical work, aided and abetted by producer/musician Ethan Johns.

Warming up for Tom Jones are Les Clochards who began in 2005 when accordionist Karen Cleave and singer Ian Nixon decided that the chanson tradition is a deeper, wider seam than many had realised, linking Jacques Brel to Southern Soul via Gene Vincent.

Fellow travellers and drinking partners Peter Momtchiloff, Gary Neville and Dean Ryan joined along the route, as French standards gave way to imperfectly beautiful original compositions. Their first LP Sweet Tableaux was released on Big Red Sky Records in July 2009, following two well-received singles, and has attracted excellent reviews. That’s because it’s really, really good.
