New Bridport venue for Dallahan frontman

FOLK quartet Dallahan’s founding member and frontman Jack Badcock releases his first solo album, Cosmography, early in May, and is heading out on a 16-venue UK tour to introduce his many fans to the new songs.

He will be at Bridport’s British Legion Hall on Saturday 18th May, and at Ashburton Arts Centre two days later – the only stops in the south of England.

Cosmography fulfils a long-held ambition for Jack, putting his diverse and arresting songwriting skills centre stage. The gifted guitarist has been lead vocalist of Dallahan (dubbed ‘the flying aces of Celtic folk’), for the past decade, Jack was born in County Kilkenny, raised in Yorkshire and now hails from Glasgow. The former finalist in the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year is known for his soulful tenor voice and enigmatic, thought-provoking lyrics. Hear the new songs in Bridport, at the Grade II listed hall in Victoria Grove.
