Lightning Jack

We’re delighted to welcome Lightning Jack back to Ely Folk Festival. One of Cambridge’s favourite bands, they have reformed after several years to bring a mix of old favourites and brand new songs, all delivered with the cool stage craft and engaging fun that is a Lightning Jack gig. Featuring Cliff Ward (also of The Willows), Ian Turner, Lester Lloyd-Reason and Fil Utting-Brown, Lightning Jack provides some of the finest entertainment around with their folky/bluesy/rocky – essentially foot-stomping – sound. We dare you to sit still when they perform on the Nightingale stage on Sunday evening.
