Lightning Jack

The boys are back! After ten years, Lester Lloyd Reason, Ian Turner, Fil Utting Brown and Cliff Ward have reformed Lightning Jack. Having provided us with some magical evenings over the years, both here on the Cambridge Folk Club Stage and as our guests at Cambridge Folk Festival, we are absolutely delighted to welcome them back. We are promised a mix of old favourites and brand new songs, all delivered with the cool stage craft and engaging fun that is a Lightning Jack gig. What a way to start the New Year! Early booking advised, this is going to be good.
