Award-winning singer-songwriter Jo Harman returns to Harwich after a sold-out triumph at the Electric Palace four years ago for a special concert at St Nicholas’ Church for the Harwich Festival. Harman’s music infuses blues, soul, gospel and pop into a timeless personal whole. Her latest CD People We Become was recorded with a crack group of session musicians in Nashville, Tennessee and the single from the album When We Were Young featured backing vocals from white soul sensation and former Doobie Brothers frontman Michael MacDonald. Harman was hand-picked to open for the Steve Miller Band and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s John Fogerty at last year’s London Bluefest at the O2. For her St Nicholas’ date she will be accompanied by upcoming young jazz pianist Emily Francis and her long-time road band guitarist Nat Martin.
