Well known and loved by audiences throughout the south, Jo has not been to CJC since 2014 when she played the first concert following her then well publicised serious illness. Her return will be warmly welcomed. 

Jo Fooks, born in Edinburgh, began learning the saxophone at 15. In 1992 she won ‘The Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year’. Inspired and encouraged by local Edinburgh musicians, Jo went on to study saxophone at the Guildhall School of Music in London (1995-99). She also studied at the Berklee School of Music in Boston after receiving a full fee scholarship for the summer jazz programme.
