Straight off a sold-out tour of massive theatres and venues, JACK SAVORETTI is back at Fibbers for an intimate one-off – and we’re super-pleased!!
Top 10 album and sold-out worldwide tour later, 2015’s Written In Scars album made Jack a star.
And now it’s follow-up Sleep No More has sent him stratospheric. Def not a Clinton’s Cards/Milk Tray love letter it’s an impressive songwriting achievement about the very real struggles of holding on to love against the odds. About the trouble, the turmoil and the ultimate realisation that you can’t fight the battles life throws you on your own.
And Jack and his band are growing in adventure. Our hero may have started as a lonely acoustic troubadour, relying on not much more than his songs and that careworn growl, but we’re now witnessing a a gorgeous widescreen sweep, drawing on a rich Italian heritage, with Morricone-like flourishes and battlefield last stands.
Savoretti’s paternal grandfather was a revered partisan who liberated WW2 Genoa from the fascists, while his mother’s father was a refugee fighting through war-torn Europe to eventually raise a family in the UK. And Jack concedes that hearing tales of his family’s heroism shaped his own stories as a songwriter.
A class act, a modern-day troubadour, a thrilling performer, a giant. We are so THRILLED to get Jack to York again, and in such an intimate setting.
