THE deckchairs were out but the crowd weren’t sitting down when Joss Stone performed at the Henley Festival last night.
The 27-year-old singer leapt into the audience and dragged guests to their feet to dance during her set.
After being introduced by TV presenter Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen, Stone was cheered as she appeared on the floating stage wearing a flowing white dress with her trademark bare feet.
She opened with slow ballad The Chokin’ Kind, which she performed on her 2003 debut The Soul Sessions.
Bryan Ferry performed on the opening night on Wednesday. For a review and pictures, see this week’s Henley Standard, or click here to watch our video of the evening.
