“The standing ovation he received was much deserved as he had the audience in the palm of his hand for the entire show. Definitely one to watch” The Scotsman
“Everyone should be queuing up for a fix of Jack L”. Scotland on Sunday – five star review*****
“Jack Lukeman – aka Jack L – is perhaps the most singular talent to have emerged from Ireland in the past decade”. The Irish Independent

Irish singer/songwriter Jack L has announced that he will play Auntie Annie’s Belfast on Saturday 4th December. Jack L recently won Best Music Award 2010 during his run of Monday nights in The Spiegel Tent at Edinburgh Festival this summer and garnered some of the best reviews of the entire festival.

Jack released his first self produced platinum seller “Metropolis Blue” in 1999.  Hot Press hailed it “A timeless collection of fine songs, beautifully delivered from an artist as unique as Ireland has ever produced.” Following the success of the album in Ireland, Jack spent 2000 taking “Metropolis Blue” to the USA which won both popular and critical acclaim.  In February 2002, Jack embarked on an Irish acoustic tour that led to the development of his greatest live undertaking so far “The Little Universe Show”.  The show started in May and ended up part of The Edinburgh Festival with rave reviews.  In 2005 Jack returned to the Edinburgh Festival to road test new material for another residency during December in Dublin, selling out three weeks of shows while previewing material from his first album in 5 years, “Broken Songs” which went platinum within a month of release.

Jack triumphantly returned to the capital this year by selling out four shows at Vicar Street. At the moment Jack is writing and recording material for his new album and is preparing for his fifth Pigalle show in London in October to Consolidate an already busy year in the UK after a knockout show in June at Glastonbury.  Jack was the first artist to play three consecutive nights at Glastonbury.  He received a critically acclaimed performance with the Brooklyn Philharmonic in Manhattan in front of 15, 000 people last summer and a nomination for ‘Male Vocalist Of The Year’ at The Meteor Awards

Jack L will be joined by Northern Irish starlet Eilidh Patterson. No stranger to the road, she has delighted audiences across the States, the UK and Europe with her captivating voice and songs.  All of Eilidh’s experiences to date have been distilled into her debut album – the much anticipated When The Time Comes – a collection of 12 beguiling and beautiful songs, capturing the heart and imagination of the listener.  Now based in Belfast, Eilidh is a regular visitor to Nashville TN where she co-writes and performs.

“Eilidh has a voice as clear as the frosty night air and her self-penned songs suggest a maturity beyond her years. Brilliant.” Maverick magazine

“Eilidh Patterson’s voice is velvet and air. The richness of her sound and her songs is something beautiful to behold and she is definitely an artist to watch!”  Beth Nielsen Chapman

“(Eilidh) has an easy going charm and commanding stage presence that demands your attention. Her sweet voice never fails to amaze me. Definitely a star of the future.” Ralph McLean, BBC Radio Ulster
