Jack Rutter is a highly respected folk singer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist from West Yorkshire.

His second solo album Gold of Scar & Shale is produced by Joe Rusby and recorded as live. It continues the stripped back approach of its critically acclaimed predecessor, Jack’s debut solo outing Hills. The songs are unearthed gems from the folk canon – almost all of them rare and many previously unrecorded – gathered from old books and source singers as Rutter uncovered material for this major new release of traditional song.

Jack’s soaring vocal takes centre stage on the album, delivering each folk tale in a fresh and current way; his masterful playing and arrangements providing the perfect accompaniment. Jack contributes guitar, bouzouki, duet concertina and harmonium to the album with featured guest musicians Sam Sweeney on fiddle, Alice Robinson on Northumbrian pipes and Sam Fisher on flugelhorn.

‘Among Britain’s finest traditional singers.’

- Folk Radio UK

‘An outstanding performer.’

- The Independent

‘In the spirit of the old traditional singers, Jack Rutter takes a song, shapes it, lives with it and brings out something unique. This album makes my heart sing.’

- Kathryn Tickell OBE, BBC Radio 3
