Luke Jackson Trio 24th Oct 2015, support from Amie K

Luke Jackson has been cited as a natural heir to songwriting guitar greats Richard Thompson and Martin Simpson-– and even Kent’s answer to Rufus Wainwright.

The shoes may be big ones to fill but Luke Jackson – he of the juggernaut voice – is taking his fast-rising career in his stride.

The Canterbury musician’s remarkable debut album More Than Boys triggered a double nomination at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (Young Folk Award and Horizon Award for Best Emerging Act) and just 18 months later he fulfilled all the promise heaped upon him with his second more blues-based album Fumes and Faith, with the accolades coming thick and fast.

Now, still only 20, Jackson steps on the gas, branches out and reveals another part of his vast armoury in This Family Tree as he introduces his Trio Andy Sharps on bass and Connor Downs (percussion).

Amie K is a young artist, only 18, showing huge talent as a singer/songwriter.
