Jack Blackman + Linda Moylan

Jack has established himself in the UK touring scene over the last couple of years as a solo artist, and has been praised and supported by the likes of ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris. As well as constantly working live shows around the UK, he has performed in the Mississippi Delta in the USA after being spun by Bob Harris. He has supported artists as diverse as Tony Joe White, Martin Simpson, Paul Jones and the Blues Band and Dave Swarbrick (Fairport Convention).

He also helps run and support “Street Arts Project” with Nigel Clark (singer/songwriter with Dodgy), supporting the homeless and vulnerable of Stratford-upon-Avon through songwriting and recording music projects.

Gigs last year include: The Electric Picnic Festival in West Ireland, Edge of the World Festival in Wales, Moseley Folk Festival, Lakefest, Moira Furnace Folk Festival and supports with Ginger Wildheart, Martin Carthy and Willy Porter.

Irish-born, London-raised Linda Moylan is a singer, songwriter, poet and story finder who skilfully blends the traditions of Celtic narrative, smoky folk and contemporary blues. Her songs speak hauntingly of life experienced and truly felt. Linda cites an eclectic mix of musical influences such as Sandy Denny, Nina Simone and Leonard Cohen. Linda will be singing songs from her second album ‘The Merchant’ which has been produced by Phil Beer (Show Of Hands / Albion Band etc) and has been getting plenty of airplay (including several from the BBC) and has had some great reviews.
