Luke Jackson is an un-pigeonhole-able (is that a word?) singer songwriter who has travelled a fair few thousand miles around the British Isles, initially with his dad Paul into pubs and bars, well run house concerts and more recently into folk & blues clubs, venues and festivals.
Luke’s songwriting draws on his experiences, family life, poignant stories he’s been told and fortunately, they’re all written in English as in his own words, he’s dreadful at languages! His performance style and songwriting skills are constantly developing and improving as confirmed by him winning the Male Artist Of The Year from Fatea in 2014 and 2016 and being nominated in 2013 for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Emerging Talent and Young Folk Categories.
Luke’s journey has been eventful but never to the point of being in danger of not being found! – his travels have seen him open for Fairport Convention, Glen Tillbrook, Show of Hands, Martyn Joseph, Paul Brady, Seth Lakeman, Marillion, Karine Polwart, and The Oysterband among others, with the odd mishap along the way such as when he once fell over very slowly and awkwardly in the middle of an airport. He didn’t find it funny, however his bass player Andy really did.
The Mad Marston Hares are an expressive acoustic trio (fiddle, guitar/banjo, and vocal/cajon) who play songs and tunes from America, Scotland and Ireland. From bluegrass to ballads, old time Appalachian to Western swing. They have performed at the Rabbit Hole Festival, the Unicorn Folk Club, the Oxford Folk Club, and the Oxford folk weekend. “Mellow and moving” Oxford Daily Info 7/2018
