Fake Thackray

Fake Thackray

15th October 2013

During the late 1960s and early 1970s Jake Thackray’s satirical, bawdy, sentimental, hilarious songs brought him fame and a string of top selling albums. Songs such as ‘Bantam Cock’, ‘The Blacksmith and the Toffee Maker’, ‘Sister Josephine’ and ‘The
Ballad of Billy Kershaw’ illustrated what a true craftsman of the English language he was.

John's Watterson’s 90 minute tribute to Jake is full of the warmth, humour and sincerity that you would expect from a lifelong fan. His appreciation and love of Thackray's music is obvious to his audience and his performance is a true celebration of the man and his genius.

"....so good that when I heard his CD I was convinced it was Jake’s album. Fake
Thackray is a must see act so check him out!"
Dave Pegg, Fairport Convention

"A proper tribute to this unique British songwriter. It is marvellous that Jake’s
treasured songs ride again. They are in safe hands."
Ralph McTell
