ABM is delighted to welcome Jack Rutter, the outstanding young folk singer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist from West Yorkshire, to the roster.

Jack has a well-earned reputation for his solo work, as well as being highly sought after as a musical collaborator (Seth Lakeman, Sam Sweeney and Jackie Oates) and having played in the celebrated instrumental trio Moore Moss Rutter.

In 2020, Jack will be performing unearthed gems from the folk canon from his brilliant new solo album Gold of Scar & Shale. Jack’s masterful playing and arrangements on guitar, bouzouki, duet concertina and harmonium provide the perfect accompaniment for his soaring vocals.

Jack is available for solo tour bookings in March and October specifically, though he has availability throughout the year for periods when he is not in demand from other touring musicians! He is also available for summer festival bookings.
‘In the spirit of the old traditional singers, Jack Rutter takes a song, shapes it, lives with it and brings out something unique. This album makes my heart sing.’ Kathryn Tickell OBE, BBC Radio 3
