Jack Hogsden is a folk musician from East Sussex, and is known for his development and interpretation of the songs sung by the working people of Sussex, Surrey and Kent. His technically percussive style of fingerpicked guitar, paired with his wide vocal range has inspired musicians across the country to go back to the sources of the ballads, ditties and songs that make up such a large part of Englands' heritage. Love, seduction, betrayal, loyalty and working life are just a few of the themes behind the engaging representations he performs across the country's folk clubs and festivals. As well as the songs, he has taken many of the tunes used for Cotswold Morris dancing, North-West Morris and the session/ceilidh tunes and adds his unique, stylistic approach on melodeons to show how the music and dancing of England is still thriving, and at the forefront of British folk.
Jack is currently working on a number of projects with numerous musicians around the England. If you want to find out more, please see the relevant social media/websites for these below:
