Before The Gold Rush, one of London’s finest folk, roots and acoustic live music nights has teamed up exclusively with Folk Radio UK for a series of live session films from some of the city’s top emerging artists. Filmed and recorded at The Haberdashery Coffee House, the wonderful intimate venue for the live events.
Before The Gold Rush: In Session #001 Jack Harris
Jack is an award-winning singer and songwriter who won Kerrville Folk Festival’s New Folk Award aged just 19.
“Jack Harris is a priest of song who holds himself to a rigorous, ancient code of beauty most of us have forgotten exists.” — Anaïs Mitchell
This song, ‘The Oldest Man’ will be on Jack’s next record, due out early next year, produced by Gerry Diver. A crowd funding campaign will soon be launched to help complete the record. Meanwhile, look out for a tour in late August/early September.
