An Evening With Jo Burt - plus support - on Friday 11th December 2015
ADVANCE TICKET SALES FOR THIS EVENT ARE NOW CLOSED. A LIMITED AMOUNT OF DOOR TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE THIS EVENING FROM 7PM AT THE VENUE - THESE TICKETS ARE £15 EACH AND FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED.
Jo Burt brings his full band back to Sherborne, Dorset for the first time in 18 months. Jo's style is based on his background of rock, with a southern-style influence and a very English Beatles-esque twist. To use his own terms – 'Anglicana' and 'psycho-country'. He is an hypnotic performer, drawing in his listeners with tales from his recording and touring past, and telling gripping and intriguing stories through his songs themselves. His warm and enthusiastic approach never fails to endear him to his audience and the connection and friendship with his band is equally apparent as they clearly thrive on performing Jo's music. It shows - together with his band, Jo continues to electrify his audience with the mixture of honesty, intensity and humour that he brings to each performance. The Sherborne concert will be part of the promotion for his current album 'Indestructible'.
