We are very proud to present a socially distanced Folk - Americana - Roots night with two of the UK's finest contemporary singer songwriters.

Luke Jackson is a Singer-Songwriter from Canterbury, Kent, who has steadily been developing a reputation for himself in the Folk & Roots 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. In 2013 Luke was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 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.

Daisy Chute is a folk-americana songstress, banjo-wielding multi-instrumentalist and hyphen-loving Londoner. Daisy’s musical roots are born out of her transatlantic Scottish/American heritage and she has been compared to artists like Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel and Eva Cassidy. Daisy writes intelligent songs with stories, and performs them with spine-tingling vocals, rich harmonies and intricate instrumentation.

Line Up

Luke is a Singer-Songwriter from Canterbury, Kent, who in 2013 was nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 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.

Over the past few years he has steadily been developing a reputation for himself in the Folk & Roots 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 .

As well as playing solo, Luke also performs as a Duo or Trio. In addition to the UK, he regularly tours across Europe playing in France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany and in 2016 and 2017 visited the USA to play at the International Folk Alliance conference in Kansas. Luke has completed several joint headline tours with Grammy Award winning songwriter Amy Wadge, with Folk Award winning duo Greg Russel and Ciaran Algar and American singer-songwriter Rebecca Loebe.

His debut album ‘More Than Boys’, produced by the acclaimed Welsh Singer-Songwriter Martyn Joseph, was released in 2012 to great reviews, as was the follow up ‘Fumes and Faith’ in early 2014. In 2015 he released a 7 track EP with his trio, ‘This Family Tree’, which was described in a 5 star Maverick review as ”Two words. Bloody brilliant” and it further reflected his development as both a writer and performer

November 2016 saw the release of Luke’s 3rd full studio album, “Tall Tales and Rumours” to universal critical acclaim, which Maverick, in a 5 star review, described as “a brilliant, thoughtful album – Jackson shows talent beyond his years”. Whilst Acoustic Magazine noted “Jackson has been compared to a young Richard Thompson and for once these are not empty words”

In February 2018 Luke put out his first live album ‘Solo:Duo:Trio’ which again has been enthusiastically received, with Mike Harding noting “That’s got to be one of the most faultless live recordings ever in my opinion- he’s a great songwriter with a great voice and boy can he sing the blues”

Daisy Chute is a folk-americana songstress, banjo-wielding multi-instrumentalist and hyphen-loving Londoner. Daisy’s musical roots are born out of her transatlantic Scottish/American heritage and she has been compared to artists like Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel and Eva Cassidy. Daisy writes intelligent songs with stories, and performs them with spine-tingling vocals, rich harmonies and intricate instrumentation.

Represented by Talentbanq Agency and an award-winning artist, Daisy came first in the Coffee Music Project singer-songwriter competition with her song ‘London’s on Fire’ which can be heard in over 900 Caffe Nero stores around the world. Last year saw an unprecedented year of over 130 performances across the UK and US with highlights including débuts at Glastonbury Festival, Union Chapel and in Danny Boyle/Richard Curtis’ feature film ‘Yesterday’.

When she’s not busy songwriting, recording or selling out independent venues, Daisy offers her dulcet tones to countless soundtracks for films, TV shows and games and for bands like Radiohead, Elbow and Two Door Cinema Club. Formerly of Universal’s Platinum-selling classical quartet All Angels, Daisy loves collaboration and is the co-founder of HEARD Collective - an artist collective who promote and support women in music, and the co-writer of COVEN - a gig theatre show about witches set to tour in 2020.
