Popular singer-songwriter Luke Jackson is set to bring his Unlocked and Solo Scottish tour to the Salmon Bothy, Portsoy on Wednesday 17th August.
Luke, who hails from Canterbury in Kent, has steadily developed a reputation for himself in the folk, roots, Americana and acoustic circuits.
Nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award and the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ‘Horizon Award’ for best emerging talent, he has gained huge acclaim for his work to date.
A seven track EP of songs titles ‘Of The Time’, which was penned during the Covid-19 lockdown, has been very well received as an addition to Luke’s existing catalogue of music.
Demand for performances at venues and events across the globe is at an all-time high, as is his rapidly growing national and international fan base.
Having toured extensively across the UK, Europe and USA, this is Luke’s eighth year touring in Scotland, but his first ever solo tour north of the border.
The event, organised by Folk at the Salmon Bothy, will be held at The Salmon Bothy on Wednesday 17 August.
Support will be provided by Chris Grant, who hails from Keith. A talented and prolific songwriter, Chris possesses one of the richest and instantly recognisable vocals in music, and is worthy of the many plaudits he receives from fans and peers alike.
Bob Philips, chairman of Folk at the Salmon Bothy, commented, “We are delighted to once again be bringing a high calibre of talent to Portsoy for local music enthusiasts to enjoy. We are really looking forward to enjoying a great night of entertainment from two excellent musicians. The gig is proving very popular, with tickets already limited, so we encourage anyone who is thinking about coming along to buy their ticket soon to avoid disappointment.”
Advance tickets for the strictly ticketed event are available now priced £10 each. Any remaining tickets will be available on the door priced £12. Doors open at 7pm, for 8pm start and attendees may bring their own bottle on the night.
