Jools Holland and Ruby Turner first met 22 years ago when Jools was looking for singers to join his big band. Ruby’s incredible voice matched her big personality and the two soon became dear friends. Describing Ruby as the sister he never had, Jools even invited the singer to perform at his wedding. The duo have gone on to write and record music together and travelled the world with tours alongside the much-loved Rhythm & Blues Orchestra (currently on their thirty-four date Autumn/Winter Tour across the UK and Ireland).
