Jack Burton (Austin TX) returns to Belfast with his wildly engaging Roots/Americana show as part of his Primavera Ireland Tour. With special guest King Cedar.
Forged in the fires of Austin, Texas’ diverse live music scene, Jack Burton has emerged a powerful and beloved singer and songwriter. Described as something of a “cross between Nathaniel Rateliff and Marc Broussard,” Jack’s deep affinity for the musical heritage of the southern United States is unmistakable on his previously released EPs I Think You Know and Soul. Inspired by the triumphs and challenges of making music and traveling, Jack and his wife and muse, Maja, have been busy writing new material that aims to shine a little light into the dark corners of personal struggle, the world’s troubles, love, acceptance, and experiences of life as wandering musicians. Infusing thought-provoking lyrics with his penetrating voice, Jack’s new material is a raw and soulful blend of gritty Roots Rock and toe-tapping front porch Blues.
