There are many good words to describe Joan Armatrading but surely the best, the most apposite, has to be... impressive. Her singing, her songwriting, her playing and her quietly understated but complete control of the stage… impressive.
And if there was ever any doubt that Joan Armatrading is more, much more, than those first great songs that brought her to the world’s attention – Love And Affection, Me Myself I, Drop The Pilot, Willow… - these shows incalculably support the claim.
For almost two hours Joan holds the stage, trawling through her career’s songbook, utilising various guitars (and playing techniques) and a piano. She shares some of the highlights of the last four decades and she gives us a glimpse of her world.
Her talent is on full display. The landmark songs, the rich, mellifluous voice, the superb musicianship. Her last few albums have seen her playing most of the instruments herself but here, alone on the stage; it is easy to see why she is also acclaimed as an instrumentalist.
Joan Armatrading is currently mid way through her last major world tour. It will be her final one on this scale.
