Joan Armatrading, one of the world’s leading singer, songwriter and guitarists will perform in Chesterfield on her last major tour.

She plays at the Winding Wheel on May 26, where she will treat fans to excerpts from her 42-year career.

On her website, Joan comments: “I will never retire but this will be the last major tour that I will undertake.

“For the first time these concerts will be me solo on stage playing the guitar and singing. I want these concerts to be a special lively interactive one to one experience.

“I have absolutely enjoyed the last 42 years of performance but now, with my final major tour, I want to capture a unique memory for both myself and the audience.”

The three-times Grammy nominee, Brit award nominee and Ivor Novello winner is best known for hits such as Love and Affection, Drop The Pilot, Me, Myself, I and Willow.

Joan was the first female UK artist to be nominated for a Grammy in the blues category and the first female UK artist to debut at number one in the Billboard blues chart. She was presented with a lifetime achievement award at the British Folk Festival in 2012.
