When the clocks strike 12am on New Year’s Day there are a handful of things that are guaranteed to happen every year: the crystal ball dropping in Time Square, New York, an incredible fireworks display on Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia, switching from one year to the next [obviously] and great live music on Jools’ Annual Hootenanny Live.
This year the Jools Holland-hosted annual show, which helps to usher in the new years every on the BBC, was blessed with performances from Sandie Shaw, the soulful James Morrison, The Vaccines, Aloe Blacc, Imelda May, Buddy Greco, Caro Emerald and Jessie J.
Below, check out some footage of Mr. Blacc performing his international hit single “I Need A Dollar,” “Loving You Is Killing Me” and “Hey Brother” and Jessie J performing her very own smash hit single “Price Tag.”
