TWO highly praised singer-songwriters will take centre stage at Jack Blackman's 'Tuery Sessions' event at the Cross Keys in Alcester this weekend.

Hailing from the small town of Kenilworth in Warwickshire, Jack Hopkinson is a singer-songwriter playing folk-pop Americana mixed with a little bit of Country.

If you like Foy Vance, Passenger, John Mayer and Jack Savoretti, you should enjoy his music.

With a sound rooted in the haze of the English folk revival, Henry Parker takes up a style crafted by players such as Bert Jansch and Nick Drake in the 1960s and early 70s.

His songs arrive either worked from his own hand, or are borrowed and developed from the traditional British folk cannon.

The free event, on April 22, starts at 6pm and will feature a raffle and jam session.
