On Friday 16 March Rhys will join Anna Calvi and Beth Jeans Houghton And The Hooves Of Destiny in Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. Another gig on the same night features Laura Marling and Lianne La Havas, in the Purcell Room.

Bob Shennan, controller of BBC Radio 2 and Radio 6 Music, said: "This has been an incredible first decade for Radio 6 Music. In addition to its recent record listening figures, it has proved itself as a unique and much loved service and a real showcase for the music that encapsulates the alternative spirit. I am proud that it has played such a key role in encouraging the take-up of digital radio across the nation."
