‘Jools’ Annual Hootenanny’ will return to screens tonight at 11:35pm on BBC Two. As always, Jools is joined by a star-studded line-up that features Ed Sheeran, who will play tracks from his new album ‘=’. Meanwhile, award-winning songwriter Gregory Porter will perform songs from his ‘Still Rising’ compilation.
Rag’n’Bone Man plays an Isley Brothers classic as well as hit single ‘All I Ever Wanted’ while Yola performs her Grammy-nominated song ‘Diamond Studded Shoes’.
Up-and-coming star Joy Crookes completes the line-up, and will perform ‘When You Were Mine’ from her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Skin’.
The show will also feature classic performances from the Hootenannies of years gone by, from acts including Madness, Soul II Soul and Craig David.
Jools’ annual extravaganza has long been a favourite of UK residents entering the New Year at home.

The programme features a countdown to midnight and a rendition of Auld Lang Syne.
Yet while the show is broadcast as live on New Year’s Eve, according to the BBC, the Hootenanny is filmed earlier in December.
Every year the show is pre-recorded weeks before its annual air time of December 31.
This revelation surprised fans in particular in 2008 as complaints poured in to the BBC after the ‘live’ New Years Eve programme was made on December 20.
It meant the Hootenanny was riddled with anomalies that left viewers confused.
The show’s list of blunders included repeated references to next year once the clock had struck midnight.
Lenny Henry told viewers that there was “little time left” of 2007 at 12:45am on January 1st.
Meanwhile, actor David Tennant was in attendance at the ‘live’ Hootenanny when it was widely reported that on New Year’s Eve that year he was in Sussex to attend his Doctor Who co-star Billie Piper’s wedding.

The most glaring error however was the presence of Kylie Minogue, who in fact was seeing out the year in her native Australia.
In response to the complaints a BBC spokesperson said: “The sequence which saw Jools travel through time was specifically included to make clear to viewers that the programme was not broadcast live to air.
“We also clearly stated in the pre-publicity material sent to the Press that the programme would be recorded in advance.
“Jools’ Annual Hootenanny is an idealised New Years Eve party with a line-up that would surely be impossible to deliver on December 31.”
This year, as ever, Jools will be joined by his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, while he will also share the stage with soul singer Ruby Turner and the Pipes and Drums of the 1st Battalion Scots Guards.
Comedian Vic Reeves, who is a regular on the show, is also included among the line-up of guests.
The show, which is an end of year special of ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ features a Hogmanay party atmosphere.
The beloved programme has been broadcast every New Year’s Eve on the BBC since 1993.
Watch ‘Jools’ Annual Hootenanny’ from 11:35pm on BBC Two.
