Joan Armatrading tour dates for 2007 with video

It was nice waking up to Joan Armatrading's music playing on Radio 2 this morning. Ever since my brother gave me her Joan Armatrading album for Christmas a few years ago I've been a fan of hers and it's great to see that after 35 years in the business she's still going strong and getting airplay on popular radio stations like Radio 2.

I think it would be fair to say that not only does Joan Armatrading have her dedicated fans who love her eclectic mix of folky pop, but she's also a well respected musician's musician. I love her voice - her placement of words when she sings, her guitar playing and course her lyrics. She can send chills down my spine.

Since working on and releasing albums almost non-stop since 1972 it's no surprise that - according to her website there's another one on the way this year! But first there's the upcoming tour which will be with a 4-piece band - bass, drums, keyboards and Joan on guitars.

    Excellent gig in Vicar Street last night. From the sound of her new material I think I'm going to love it. She has a great voice for blues.
