Jamie Cullum

Duration:
45 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 25 March 2012

Kirsty Young's castaway is the jazz pianist and singer Jamie Cullum.

His interview was recorded in front of an audience at St George's in Bristol and launched Radio 4's More Than Words Festival. Despite failing his grade four piano exam and, by his own admission, barely being able to read music, Jamie Cullum has become hugely popular. He is particularly celebrated for his live shows and in this very special recording, he performed three of his musical choices.

Producer: Leanne Buckle.
