Posted on: Thursday, Oct 8, 2015


8 pm doors for 9 pm show – £10

From Pete Evans:

We were absolutely blown away by Jack when he appeared at the Overton festival in May. Many people told us that he was the star of the festival and we had to agree. Rarely have we heard such talent on the guitar from someone so young.

Jack recently graduated from Leeds University School of Music and is hoping to pursue a musical career professionally. He has immersed himself in pre and post war acoustic blues and has already performed and been received in awe in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

His mastery of Blind Blake’s Police ‘Dog Blues’ recorded on YouTube when was only 18 has left many seasoned guitarists speechless.
