Jack Rutter has established himself as one of the standout voices of the folk, roots and acoustic music scene in recent years. The Yorkshire folk singer has enthralled audiences from the largest festival main stages to the most intimate folk clubs. His soaring vocals, powerhouse guitar and bouzouki playing contribute to masterful arrangements of traditional songs and contemporary covers.

Following on from his critically acclaimed second album Gold of Scar & Shale, 2022 saw the release of a brand new EP, with 2023 bringing the successor to Gold of Scar & Shale in the form of a new album of traditional songs.

‘You always want an exciting new discovery at a festival, and for many it was Jack Rutter who provided just that. What prowess he showed in music, he matched with his skills as a raconteur; his love and respect for the songs in turn made the audience joyful.’
