Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra welcome in the new year with a studio packed full of musical stars for his traditional Annual Hootenanny. As we see out 2021 and ring in 2022, Jools invites a spectacular cast of guest singers to help him and his band put on the best party in town, as well as taking time to reflect on years gone by with some of the best performances from the hit-packed Hootenanny archive.
