An audience without Jake Thackray

Another successful music night was held in the Village Hall in April. This time something slightly different to previous events, with a highly entertaining show by John Watterson as Fake Thackray and his interpretation of the songs of sixties song writer, poet, and chansonnier Jake Thackray. The songs, which ranged from satirical to bawdy to sentimental to pastoral, and a strong emphasis on storytelling, were delivered perfectly by John to an appreciative audience. John managed to capture the clipped delivery style of Jake, singing the songs in the original Yorkshire accent. The hall was again virtually full with Oxhill music lovers, and some travelling from Stratford, and even Stockport !
