There’s only one place to be on New Year’s Eve, and that’s in front of the box with a tipple of choice while watching Jools Holland. This year’s guests include a man whose musical career has been nothing if not diverse.
Jools Holland presents his 21st annual Hootenanny, featuring a mixture of veteran artists and modern chart stars.
The line-up features former Kinks frontman Ray Davies, singer-songwriter Lisa Stansfield (singing her forthcoming single Carry On & All Around The World), Edinburgh duo the Proclaimers, Spice Girl Melanie C, Jamaican vocalist Dawn Penn, who teams up with Madness saxophonist Lee Thompson, east London outfit Rudimental and Colorado band the Lumineers. Others to watch out for include rising soul star Laura Mvula, Haim, Charlie Wilson of the Gap Band, North Yorkshire lad John Newman and a woman who's become a fixture on the annual show - veteran Ruby Turner. As usual, Jools' own Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will be backing many of the solo stars, and as the clocks strike 12, the Pipes and Drums of the 1st Battalion Scots Guards help ring in the new year in their own rousing fashion. As well as the musical entertainment, Jools chats to the celebrity audience members, asking them to share their thoughts on the past year and give their predictions for 2014.
