‘An Audience without Jake Thackray’ includes many Jake classics (Sister Josephine, On Again On Again, The Bantam Cock etc), anecdotes from the forthcoming biography plus some recently discovered ‘lost’ Thackray masterpieces.
Jake Thackray (1938-2002) is increasingly recognised as being one of the greatest English songwriters of the twentieth century, a unique talent, whose songs are full of poetry, wit, irreverence and humanity.
John Watterson is the UK’s leading performer of Jake’s songs. As Fake Thackray he has toured with Fairport Convention and performed at festivals, theatres and clubs across the UK and on local and national radio, and on TV on Meet the Richardsons
