  1. An Evening without Jake Thackray. Fake Thackray (John Watterson) returns to home soil ... after his successful visit in 2012 ... as part of Island of Culture 2014. John's homage to Jake Thackray has earned him plaudits all over the British Isles, having supported Fairport Convention and Richard Digance. He also had a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival in Summer 2013 gaining plaudits for his "An Evening without Fake Thackray", which is the show he will bring to our Sunday Night Special at Jabberwocky in 2014. Tickets are on sale at £15 each - via http://www.eTickets.im/jp and from Jabberwocky in hard copy.
  2. A Fake Comeback? Manxman John Watterson will bring his one man show ‘Fake Thackray – the life and songs of Jake Thackray’ to the Island on Sunday 29 July, 8pm at Peel's Centenary Centre. Jake Thackray’s satirical, witty, hilarious songs brought him fame and extensive TV exposure in the 60s and 70s on Esther Rantzen’s ‘That’s Life’ and he performed at the Island’s 1976 Folk Festival, and subsequently at the folk club in Douglas. Jake stopped performing in the early 90s and died in 2002. John’s tribute to Jake is full of the warmth, humour and sincerity that you would expect from a lifelong fan. He is a talented guitarist and vocalist and the show is a highly entertaining celebration of the work of one of England’s finest and funniest songwriters. John, who now lives in York, has recently been invited to take the show on a 6 week UK wide tour this winter as special guest of Fairport Convention, and he is delighted to be performing on the Island. He says ‘I recall going to the Falcon Cliff pub with friends and family to see Jake and we had never laughed so much. It is a privilege to be able to sing some of his wonderful songs back on ‘home ground’. I am hoping that friends from my formative years at St Thomas’ School, Ballakermeen, St Ninian’s and of course - the Dog’s Home - will pop in and say hello!’ Tickets are £10 and will shortly be available from Centenary Centre outlets and now available from http://www.eTickets.im/jp MORE ABOUT JOHN WATTERSON http://www.jonnopromotions.com/viewartist.php?aid=132
