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, Kent and the surrounding counties.  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 Hogsden is also exploring a large amount of dance tunes from around the world, that are simply asking to be played with that unique, bouncy style that sets his playing apart from many others in the folk and traditional music world.


Jack Hogsden is also beginning to experiment with a wide range of genres and musics, making him a more versatile industry professional.  His use of electronic production and sampling, through to adding harmony lines and adding verses on hip hop and trap tracks.  please contact using the menu above for more inforamation.
