Jack Blackman - 22nd June

Jack Blackman is fast developing into one the most accomplished and exciting young performers on the acoustic roots scene today. His guitar playing has been described as 'exquisite' (FATEA Magazine, 2013), and his songs have been generating a great deal of attention from many in the music industry.

Although always haunted by the ghosts of the blues, Jack's music fuses this with classy song writing and a folk sensibility. His voice has been described as sounding 'older and more careworn than his tender years should allow' (Acoustic Magazine, 2011), and he is also arguably the best slide guitar player of his generation.

Folk on the Water

Folk on the Water - the RECIPE: take one medley of musicians and place into a large 8-berth boat. Add organic food, a glass of wine, assorted instruments and move gently along the Warwickshire canal. Position under a warm English fortnight and allow to occasionally settle in pub gardens. Serve with a mixture of canalside communities and add applause to taste.
