A Joan As Policewoman show takes you on a journey through her range of musical talents. Her set covers all bases as far back as her debut album and whilst we stop off at various points on the albums in between, the focus of tonight's set is The Classic, from which we get seven of the ten songs. We get to see Joan move effortlessly from keyboard to guitar to violin, often within the same song and we're drawn in by her enthusiasm and love for performing and her willingness to interact with her audience even though she should really be on bigger stages than this one. She even asks an audience member to restring her guitar early in the set.
It's impossible not to warm to her, a truly inspirational role model of how female artists can dictate to the business on their own terms and be successful despite the gender bias of the industry, particularly when guitars are involved. She still insists on coming out at the end of the show to meet her fans and sign albums too.
Fittingly though, she closes the set on her own on keyboards and playing recent b-side Your Song. Nearly ten years on, she still has the fire in her belly and producing emotive, heartfelt music that demands to be listened to. There aren't enough Joan Wassers in this business.
Joan played What Would You Do, Holy City, Good Together, Get Direct, The Ride, Stay, New Year's Day, Hard White Wall, Christobel, Chemmie, I Defy, The Magic and Shame with an encore of The Classic, and Your Song.
