LUKE JACKSON AND AMY WADGE

Two generations of captivating singer-songwriters touring together for the first time.

Amy Wadge is widely regarded as one of the country's most successful female singer-songwriters. Over the course of five solo albums, two collaborations, numerous compositions for other artists and hundreds of live performances she has established an outstanding body of work.

Amy has recently written songs with musical superstar Ed Sheeran, including current smash single, Thinking Out Loud. The song has garnered critical acclaim being nominated for Best Song at the 2015 BRIT Awards and X, the album on which it appears, for Album of the Year at the Grammys 2015.

Luke Jackson is a rising young Roots singer-songwriter who was nominated for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2013.

With a bold, show stopping voice and honed guitar skills, Luke is a confident and captivating performer demonstrating an astonishing maturity. He has been making waves on the live acoustic scene supporting such luminaries as Show of Hands, Karine Polwart, Oysterband and Martyn Joseph.
