London Jazz Festival bags Sugar Man

Okay, so I’m just going to state this spoiler alert in case I ruin the surprise for anyone who hasn’t yet seen much-praised music doc ‘Searching For Sugar Man’; if you haven’t yet seen the film, don’t read this next part.

1960s folk figure Sixto Rodriguez, who is still (despite what’s implied at the beginning of ‘Searching For Sugar Man’) very much alive, will crown his cult resurgence with a live set at the Royal Festival Hall this autumn. Staged as part of the London Jazz Festival, the concert takes place on 17 Nov.
