Jon’s background as a journalist (a former editor of Time Out magazine and contributor to Dazed & Confused, The Guardian and other publications) means that he has a great eye/ear for a story, and this shows in his live shows – an amusing mix of folk song performance and conversation.
He throws in weird and wonderful tidbits about the original singers and collectors that he has unearthed during his substantial writing and podcasting research on traditional folk music in the UK, and his performance has been described as half concert, half standup routine.
To date, Jon has recorded three full-length folk albums and one EP.
Jon has also been collecting and arranging Birmingham and Black Country folk songs, recorded on his two LPs Midlife and Up The Cut.
