Jack has been booked for the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow.
As guest on the Iain Anderson live broadcast concert on Feb' 1st.

Below are a couple of reasons/opinions why.

"He doesn't just cover a song but strips it back to the bare wood, finds new springs and re-upholsters the whole damn thing so that what you get is the song that Jack built.
He can write songs too, songs that are in every way the equal of those he loves."
Neil Dalton. (Review from Maverick magazine.)
"Being English, then, and singing American and American-influenced material is a dangerous route to travel. Most don't pull it off. Jack Hudson does. In spades.
He is an immaculate interpreter of others' songs highlighted tonight especially by 'L.A. Freeway,' the old Guy Clark classic - and no mean writer himself - his own 'Driftwood and Nails' displayed skill and craftmanship and searing emotional integrity. It stepped up to match the covers."
Rod Warner. (Review of live performance.)
