Jack Harris is a Welsh born London based singer/songwriter. His career was off to a flying start in 2005 when aged 19 he won the prestigious New Folk Competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival (Texas).

These days he's an older, wiser, more reflective man. His literate and compassionate songs rooted in Folk and Blues traditions frequently navigate into less charted lyrical areas and the darker sides of life. As a live act his fluid guitar style, engaging personality and dry humour have served him well whether opening for well known artists or playing solo at venues and festivals across the UK and Europe.

A key early influence was Randy Newman, as was an enlightening Christmas present consisting of Joni Mitchell's Blue, Miles Davis' Kind of Blue and Tom Waits' Heartattack and Vine. Sacred texts had been brought down from the mountain and the news was good!

From time to time we select a past Invisible Folk Club radio show to air on the podcast channel. Jon Bickley curates and presents the show. Nothing in the broad church of folk related music is off limits.

On our podcast channel you'll find shows where the songs might be longer, where the music is allowed to stretch and breathe. Maybe something a little more challenging. We know our podcast listeners have the time, space and inclination to play the long game, to allow something to evolve.

In this episode we have many shades of folk, profundity is everywhere you look. There are some big names, there are some who could be big.

David Gunawardana - Figures and Faces
David Gunawardana - Cloth
Pippa Letsky - Feather on the Water
Nigel Moorcroft - Annan Waters
Bob Dylan - The Death Of Emmett Till
Bob Dylan - Tomorrow is a Long Time
Waterboys - Drunken Head Ghost of Rimbaud Blues
Waterboys - The Lake Isle of Innisfree
Waterboys - Fisherman's Blues
Alison Cotton - 36 Dramatic Situations
The Left Outsides - All That Remains
Bert Jansch - Blues Run the Game

Sascha Osborn is a London based singer/songwriter. Her reflective songs of life experience are coloured by folk and jazz influences. Early in her career a vocal fold cyst stopped her singing for 6 months, but a potentially dark period became one for learning musical theory, honing technique and absorbing new music. The artist that emerged had found her stylistic voice, a real triumph out of adversity.

Sascha's first album 'Looking Out and After' (2018) was produced by the talented Patrick Wood who also contributed guitar & piano along with Roy Dodds (drums) and Simon Edwards (double & electric bass).
There is also an earlier EP 'Love Finds You' (2015)
All recordings are available from https://saschaosborn.co.uk

Sascha is a regular live performer around London & the South East as well as occasional support slots around the UK. She performs solo (with guitar) or as a duo with Andy Hamill (double bass, bass guitar)
