Ebene News – GB – Is Jools Hollands’ Hootenanny Live?

The 27th Annual New Year’s Eve Musical Extravagance takes place tonight and offers people live musical enjoyment

Jools Hollands’ Hootenanny is one thing we can count on to continue as usual this New Years Eve with the presenter and his musical guests to keep us entertained as midnight approaches

But if you’re wondering how he’s not yet tired of spending December 31 presenting his annual Hootenanny after 27, well, that’s because he doesn’t

It turns out that Jools Holland, M New Year’s Eve itself, doesn’t really count until midnight with us – not live, at least

The party show pre-taps earlier in December, as the guests and Jools himself likely have other plans on NYE

This year, Hootenanny will likely be set up slightly differently due to the coronavirus pandemic, warm conversations with opposing piano music legends, and audiences likely won’t be shouting Auld Lang Syne at the midnight strike

In fact, chanter-a-longs will not be on the cards at all as there was actually no audience present at the recording due to safety guidelines

The two-hour and five-minute show will air from 1115h on BBC Two, tonight – December 31

Tomorrow (January 1) on BBC Two you can catch up on previous years with Jools’ best annual Hootenanny songs at 1045h

This year, Jools and his orchestra join Celeste, Sir Tom Jones, Michael Kiwanuka, Roisin Murphy, Rick Wakeman, Ruby Turner, Chris Difford and the Pipes and Drums of the 1st Batallion Scots Guards in the studio

2020 Mercury Prize winner Michael Kiwanuka performs song from his award-winning self-titled album and covers a song written by his idol Bill Withers

The BBC sound of 2020 Celeste serenades us with his infectious and moving voice on a number or two The legendary Sir Tom Jones returns to the show with his unmistakable baritone voice and a good dose of rock ‘n’ roll 1950s Irish singer-songwriter and former half of Moloko, Roisin Murphy, makes a comeback after her performance on the Millennium Hootenanny two decades ago

Composer, producer and keyboardist Rick Wakeman joins Jools for a piano duet to serve up a good dose of boogie-woogie, and hootenanny queen Ruby Turner lifts the roof

Jools also looks back at some of the incredible Hootenanny performances from the archives, including Jamiroquai, Rudimental and Ella Eyre, Madness, ABC and Aloe Blacc
