‘This is an accomplished duo. Not only is the musicianship excellent, the vocal delivery is spot on‘ FRANK HENNESSY, BBC RADIO WALES
Wildwood Jack are a totally unique acoustic guitar and ukulele duo from Kent.
Having sold their home in 2013 to hit the road and tour the world they bring a heartwarming and adventurous spirit to their music and to audiences wherever they play. The quality of their musicianship together with songs that sparkle with the journeys of a life on the road will be sure to uplift you. Contemporary folk music with a twist of bluegrass and world music played with outstanding fingerstyle guitar and ukulele.
Wildwood Jack are husband and wife Adam Piggott and Jayne Freeman, brought together by a love of music when they first met in 1991 at Hull University and they’ve been travelling on musical journeys ever since. Settling in Hastings in East Sussex in 2002 they played in various musical projects from samba bands, ukulele sextets and a cabaret trio all the while gathering and writing songs with music taking them further and further afield. From these travels and adventures they longed to hit the road full time and in June 2013 they sold up and began an inspirational journey that’s taken them all over the UK, Europe and New Zealand. Playing at acoustic clubs, folk clubs, festivals, house concerts and even busking has brought new people to their music.
Their album ‘Liberty Ship’ released in 2018 has been widely played across folk radio shows with excellent reviews:
