Around 100 people enjoyed a journey in song with Jayne Freeman and Adam Piggott (Wildwood Jack) this Sunday afternoon. They presented a varied programme ranging from the familiar with an exquisite rendition of Elenor Rigby to the more exotic where guitar and ukulele were accompanied by a drone from the Indian Shruti box. There were many expressions of appreciation from the audience.
Everyone goes wild about Wildwood Jack –
“Quality songwriting, engaging, uplifting and filled with memorable melodies.” R2 Magazine
“This is an accomplished duo. Not only is the musicianship excellent, the vocal delivery is spot on.” Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales

A was a lovely afternoon with relaxed ‘vibe’ from the audience. ‘So good to hear music from South America again too,’ was a comment from one person.
Over 100 people packed into the church to listen, and swing to, a wide-ranging programme of Tango music from Argentina (including the wistful Song d’automn, used for the Jeeves and Wooster TV series) and gypsy-inspired numbers from Europe (à la Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt).
Pictures show Sebastian, Ben and James performing and then relaxing after the show.
