British blues rock guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor was born and raised in the Black Country. Joanne was originally discovered by Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart as a 16 year old guitar prodigy. Through hard work and near-constant touring, she is now regarded as one of the hottest young names on the British Blues circuit. She is admired and respected by many leading blues guitarists including Joe Bonamassa and John Mayall.
Joanne was voted “Best British Female Vocalist” at the British Blues Awards in 2010 and 2011. Joanne was invited as special guest to Annie Lennox performing at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert in June 2012.
Joanne’s new studio album, “The Dirty Truth”, is released in the UK on Monday 22nd September 2014. Signed copies of the limited edition digipak CD are available for pre-order now from www.joanneshawtaylor.com
This show will feature former Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden as Joanne’s special guest.

Sunday Telegraph – “A Brummie blues singer? Yes, really. Joanne Shaw Taylor has enough soul to compete with the best the Mississippi Delta has to offer.”

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
