Moving onto the acts which defined the Saturday at Beardy Folk, the starting point from a personal view has to be the 8 o’clock main stage performance from Luke Jackson. Despite having followed his career for several years this was the first time seeing the Luke Jackson Trio and the effect of adding drums, electric bass and a fuller sound to the outstanding voice was immense. The results took his performance to another level in both how the songs are presented and how Luke himself plays off the accompaniment. This was on the back of seeing him play solo earlier in the year and a clear reminder of how he is blossoming as a performer. Another positive was the enthusiastic reaction from a larger gathering than usually greets his trips to the Midlands and hasten to say the queue at the merch table was longer in number than many of his previous gig audiences in the area.
