The song, which also features on a forthcoming film, is dedicated to all of those who have served their country and has received standing ovations worldwide.
Justin will be supported by Mike Dawes.

Justin said: “I'm always so thrilled to have the opportunity to tour in the UK, particularly at this time in in my career when no-one knows what the future holds.

“I'm bringing my songwriting guitars from home on the road with me, so the gigs will have the feel and sound of my music room along with the vibe I was feeling as I wrote the songs.

“I look forward to singing and playing new songs and old songs, particularly Forever Autumn, which I only get to perform in my solo show, and The Wind Of Heaven from the forthcoming movie, and also to tell the real stories behind all the songs and the events that surrounded them at the time.

“It's a joy to share a stage with such wonderful young and inspiring talents as Mike Dawes. I look forward to seeing you on the road”.
Justin’s solo career began in 1977 with Songwriter.  In 1978, he had a worldwide hit with the timeless Forever Autumn from the War of the Worlds.

Kate Rusby at Christmas

Folk singer to perform at Hull City Hall in December

Award-winning folk singer Kate Rusby is bringing her Christmas show to Hull City Hall this December.
With a career spanning 25 years, Kate is one of the finest interpreters of traditional folk songs and a Mercury Prize nominee, Folk Singer of the Year, Best Live Act, Best Album and Best Original Song winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
One of the country’s most emotive original songwriters, her beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience. 
Famously down to earth, for more than 20 years Kate’s engaging personality and sharp Yorkshire wit – she is from a small village near Barnsley – have further endeared her to concert goers everywhere and it is in her special Christmas concerts that all these elements combine to exquisite effect.
After 15 years of enchanting festive audiences up and down the land, Kate’s Christmas tour – captured on her 2013 Live At Christmas concert DVD – has for many become as much a part of the festivities as Christmas pudding itself.
In thesw Christmas concerts, Kate embraces and shares a local South Yorkshire tradition of which she’s been a part ever since she was a child.
For more than two hundred years, from late November to New Year’s Day, the good folk of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire have flocked to their local public houses on Sunday lunchtimes to sing their own, unique variations of familiar carols that, as Kate says, ‘were kicked out of churches during the Victorian era for being too happy!’.
Kate’s forthcoming fourth Christmas album celebrates this marvellous Yorkshire-inspired tradition and this year’s festive tour will feature tracks from it.
Kate and co will also be performing songs and carols from all four of her previous Christmas releases and there might be a favourite or two from her back catalogue in recognition of 25 years of magnificent music making.
Warm and inviting, spicy and sparkly she and her marvellous band embody the sounds and joyous spirit of the best Christmases ever.
Kate’s band of merry musicians this December will comprise of Damien O’Kane on guitar, tenor guitar and banjo, Aaron Jones on bouzouki, Nick Cooke on diatonic accordion and Duncan Lyall on double bass. Kate will also be joined on stage by her fabulous brass quintet.
