Jools Holland, 60, is back with his annual New Year’s Eve bash, Hootenanny. The celebrations will see a whole host of famous faces performing as we ring in the start of 2019. Jools Holland has fronted the show for 26 years, alongside having a musical career of his own. His success has led him to rake up an eye-watering fortune, but how much is the singer worth?
Jools has a net worth of £3.9 million ($5 million), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
As well as being a TV host, the 60-year-old is an English pianist, bandleader, singer and composer.
He is best known for performing in Squeeze, The The, and Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra.
Jools was the founding member of the former, when they formed in 1974.
He played keyboards for the band until pursuing his solo career in 1978.
Throughout the years he has worked with an array of musical icons, including Sting and Bono.
Jools’ Hootenanny is an end of year special of his series Later… with Jools Holland.
This year, he has an incredible line-up of artists including Jess Glynne, Michael Bublé, Nile Rodgers and George Ezra.
Viewers will also see performances from Marc Almond, Rudimental, Yola, The Record Company, Junior Giscombe and Hot 8 Brass Band.
And the star-studded line-up doesn’t end there.
Also performing will be Ruby Turner and The Pipes and Drums of the 1st Battalion Scots Guards.
Jools Holland’s Hootenanny airs tonight on BBC Two from 11.15pm for two hours.
The show was long thought to be live, due to its countdown to New Year being a main feature of the programme.
However, it is in fact pre-recorded early December.
A spokesperson for the show previously described it: “Jools’ Annual Hootenanny is an idealised New Year’s Eve party with a line-up that would surely be impossible to deliver on December 31.”
This year, as the clock hits midnight The Pipes and Drums of the 1st Battalion Scots Guards will provide the traditional Auld Lang Syne.
