Description

After a 10 years period of inactivity in Cornwall, Jake has decided to relaunch his talents on today's market with this beautiful new recording, Emain. Aided by Breton musician, Eric Liorzou, and his long time music collaborator and champion, Jez Lowe, Jake has called on co-writers of the calibre of W.B.Yeats and Walter De La Mere, carrying on Jake's love of poetry and putting poetry to music. The album also highlights Jake as one of our finest exponents of the Hurdy Gurdy, showcased here on three brilliant instrumentals. His own songs are very whimsical and lyrical with understated and totally sympathetic backing. Many are steeped in the Celtic legends, which Jake has studied and loved for decades, long before the current Celtic come all ye. Insightful sleeve notes from old friend Ralph McTell prove that Jake and his music engenders long-term love and friendship.
