Luke Jackson, nominee for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, will be playing Hootananny on October the  17th, 2013.


The Canterbury based  18 year old singer song writer has recently released debut album More Than Boys , which is described as “a riff- layered rite of passage CD”.  The Daily Telegraph proclaimed it as ““An affecting and highly promising debut album” where Properganda noted of the singer and the album that “A young man enjoying some notable patronage – a debut album of surprising maturity and a compelling listen”.

Despite his age, he has already supported the likes of Steve Knightley, Lucy Ward and Boo Hewerdine and  is gigging hard throughout the summer with a decent selection of festival bookings already.

Yet another opportunity to catch a rising star in the making at Hootananny.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at
