Jack Savoretti

Jack Savoretti appearing at this event

A bohemian troubadour in a long and sometimes glorious tradition. Maybe you've seen him busking on a street corner, and stopped for a moment, caught by a delicate web of soulful music spun for any passing ear. Think about Jeff Buckley, Ray LaMontagne, Nick Drake, Ben Harper, Damien Rice. Think of the grit and soul of Richard Ashcroft, the raw emotiveness of Neil Diamond. It's the singer and the song. Jack Savoretti is something special. Just one man and his guitar. This is pure music from the source.
