We’re really spoiling you here! Not one but two amazing musical treats.
Luke Jackson, a Singer-Songwriter from Canterbury was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (2013) for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and The Young Folk Category. He was also winner of Fatea’s “Male Artist of the Year 2014” and 2016 and his live album ‘Solo:Duo:Trio’ was voted 2018 Album of the Year by Laurel Canyon.
Over the past few years he has steadily developed a reputation for himself in the Folk, Roots, Americana & Acoustic circuits, either through his solo shows, many festival appearances or when opening for such luminaries as Fairport Convention, Show of Hands, Steve Knightley, Martyn Joseph, Seth Lakeman, Karine Polwart, Oysterband, Paul Brady, Glen Tilbrook and Sarah Jarosz.
The Tumbling Souls are a country music band from the Isle of Lewis, comprising of members from much loved bands, Face The West, Astrid and Ho Ro.
They produce brand new music that sounds old. A super group of local musicians playing cajun, country and folk infused songs.
What they say about Luke:
Every so often a new voice emerges, one so stunning that it knocks you sideways. Jackson has been compared to a young Richard Thompson and for once these are not empty words – Acoustic Magazine
Luke Jackson sings with an extraordinarily rich voice and possesses a guitar technique astonishing for one so young. I first heard him sing four years ago and even then his songwriting suggested a performer of rare promise – Steve Knightley, Show of Hands
Tumbling Souls Facebook reviews:
“Great live band and great songs, some of which I actually thought were C & W Standards until I learned they are all original! Fantastic! Excellent CD, thoroughly recommended.” – Pete Hynd
“Just back from a rollicking good gig. This is a band that that feeds off an audience. As part of Celtic Connections and a promo event of HebCelt they provided a fun filled evening.” – Catriona Gibson
