Fake Thackray 11-Jul-2013
John Watterson has performed the songs of Jake Thackray at festivals, arts centres, clubs, theatres and – most specially – to members of the Thackray family in Jake’s ‘local’ in Monmouth.
Jake's songs are exquisitely funny, satirical, incisive, irreverent, witty and gloriously un-PC – and sometimes all of these at the same time. Jake was a one off; his poetry broke the rules yet worked beautifully. He was a true craftsman of the English language, and his legacy of scores of songs continues to delight audiences of all ages today.
A highly entertaining, heartfelt tribute to one of the finest songwriters of the 20th century.

Martin Carthy 21-Nov-2013
For more than 40 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music's best loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures. His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it.
He's a ballad singer, a ground-breaking acoustic and electric-guitarist and an authoritative interpreter of newly composed material. Perhaps, most significant of all, are his settings of traditional songs with guitar, which have influenced a generation of artists, including Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, on both sides of the Atlantic.
