Jake Thackray Night
The Greystones
 

With songs about burglars disguised as nuns, unspeakably awful in-laws, village scallywags and rampant cockerels, all human (and animal) life is on show in this gala evening. Featuring:

  • THE JAKE THACKRAY SYNDROME - showcasing the brilliant comic songs of the late, great Jake Thackray. Lymm resident Paul Thompson is one of the foremost interpretors of Thackray's outrageous oeuvre.
  • RUDOLF ROCKER PLAY THACKRAY AND BRASSENS - Cult group from Whitby who address Jake's 'French' songs including his translations of the great chansonnier Georges Brassens. 
  • BOB FISCHER - BBC Radio DJ and weird folk singer who delivers rollicking versions of Jake's favourite numbers.
