THIS EVENT IS AT CASSIOBURY PARK
Joe Stilgoe is an internationally acclaimed singer, pianist and songwriter. He’s released 8 albums, five of which have topped the UK Jazz chart.
Growing up as the youngest of 5 children he was surrounded by music, with two parents in the business – songwriter and TV personality Richard Stilgoe and opera-singing Annabel Hunt.
Joe is a true modern-day entertainer, known globally as a performer of wit, style and a level of musicianship which has seen him recognised as one of the best singer-pianists in the world. Always searching for a new way of bringing not only his own songs but those he loves from the past to a new audience, he is an enticing mix of his heroes Danny Kaye, Nat King Cole and Dudley Moore, and influenced by Harry Connick Jr, Peter Skellern, Cole Porter, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, The Beach Boys, Oscar Peterson, Hoagy Carmichael, Irving Berlin and Joni Mitchell.
His latest album, Stilgoe In The Shed, which topped the UK Jazz Chart, came about after Joe started broadcasting on Youtube from his shed at the start of the pandemic in 2020. The resulting show ‘Stilgoe In The Shed’ picked up over 180,000 viewers around the world, and led to this unique album, praised in the UK press and featured on both BBC and ITV news.
Joe has created award-winning theatre shows including A Tribute To Gene Kelly, Songs On Film and Live At The Lyric with his own big band. He works extensively on radio, having hosted and starred many times in BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night is Music Night, while also being a regular presence on the station (Joe Stilgoe – Christmas At The Movies,
Jingle Bell Joe, One Night Stand at Ronnie Scotts), and being a regular guest and presenter on JazzFM,
Radio 3 and 4.
