Polar Bear Announce Autumn UK Tour And Appear On Later Tonight
Published 16 April 2010 by BWL

Sebastian Rochford's Polar Bear are on tonight's opening programme of BBC 2's Later... with Jools Holland. This is very exciting for us, not least because it is the first appearance of one of artists on the show, and appropriately in our 15th year (Leaf XV). The programme runs from 11.45pm tonight and will be available on BBC's iPlayer for those who will be tucked in by that point. More info here.

As a warm up to this, you can listen to Polar Bear's live session on Tom Robinson's BBC 6 Music show which runs from 7-9pm. Find out more here.

On a more unusual note, both Seb Rochford and Mark Lockheart from Polar Bear have been nominated for Jazz Musician Of The Year at the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. The awards take place at the House of Commons next month when there may well be a new government in office! Read more here.
