Melting Vinyl and Folkestone Quarterhouse present:
The critically acclaimed Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Joan As Police Woman plays Folkestone to celebrate the release of her first career retrospective.
Already acknowledged as a thrilling live performer and starkly honest lyricist, her 2019 tour strips her sound down to its true essence, performing her songbook with piano and guitar. This is a concert format her fans have longed to hear since her much loved solo shows in support of her 2006 classic debut album Real Life. “JOANTHOLOGY” highlights Joan’s remarkable first fifteen years of writing and recording music, that has continually defied categorisation.
Famously a collaborator and muse to artists as diverse as Anohni, Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed and Beck, this show will see Joan re-imagine many of the key songs and play material from her upcoming second album of covers.
