John Watterson keeps the Jake Thakray legend alive.

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 humour, poetry, wit, irreverence and humanity – often all at the same time.

John Watterson is Jake’s biographer and the UK’s leading performer of Jake’s songs. As Fake Thackray he has toured with Fairport Convention, played at many festivals, theatres, clubs and on national radio. John has recently 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 have never been heard at all.

These songs, along with never-before told stories from the biography research plus several much-loved Jake classics, feature in John’s new show - a hilarious and captivating celebration the life and songs of one of this country’s finest and funniest wordsmiths.
