BRIT Award winning singer James Morrison will be performing at a concert in Suffolk this summer.

Morrison, who scooped the prestigious Best British Male gong at the Brit Awards last week, has announced he will be performing a series of outdoor concerts around the country in June and July and will be starting the tour in Suffolk.

He is set to appear at High Lodge in Thetford Forest on June 7.

Morrison has become one of the biggest stars of British music since first rising to prominence last year and became the best selling solo male artist of 2006.

His debut album, Undiscovered, went to the top of the album sales charts when it was released in August and he has had hits with singles such as You Give Me Something and Wonderful World and Pieces Don't Fit Anymore. His latest single Undiscovered is set to be released on March 12.

The summer tour will see Morrison perform at Forestry Commission sites around the UK and the shows will support the commission's social and environmental programmes.
