Comments Off on The LOST Will & Testament of Jake Thackray

The LOST Will & Testament of Jake Thackray

Poppleton Live’s first event this year is with their very own John Watterson with:
wattersonThe LOST Will and Testament of Jake Thackray’ – Jan 28th 2017.
The late Jake Thackray is being increasingly acknowledged as one of the greatest English songwriters of the twentieth century, a unique talent, whose songs are full of poetry, wit, irreverence and humanity. His intelligent and hilarious lyrics, talent for storytelling, clever wordplay, occasional, artful use of vulgarity and surreal imagination delighted many viewers and outraged some. Since his death in 2002 there has been growing recognition of his genius and a resurgence of interest in his work. His admirers include Jarvis Cocker, Alex Turner, Don Black, Thea Gilmore, Cerys Matthews, Benjamin Clementine and Neil Gaiman.
John is the UK’s leading performer of Jake’s songs. As Fake Thackray he has toured with Fairport Convention and performed at Latitude, Cropredy and the Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. He has also played for Jake’s family and appeared on Radio 4’s ‘Great Lives’.

For the past three years John has been researching to write the first biography on Thackray, with the help of Jake’s family, friends and fellow performers. In the course of this research, John has uncovered 15 wonderful songs written by Jake but never released – some have lain forgotten in the BBC archives for decades, others found in Jake’s personal papers haven’t ever been heard. These songs, along with never-before told stories from the biography research plus several much-loved Jake classics, feature in John’s new show.

John will be joined by Paul Thompson and Hugh Bradley to play songs from the new album, together with some classic Jake Thackray songs as well.
The album is available now on the www.fakethackray.com website or on Amazon, but why buy online when you can come and hear it live (and then buy the album!)
