“Intensely adept acoustic guitar stylings“ Netrythms
“Melodic and sophisticated“ Shire Folk
Wildwood Jack are a unique acoustic guitar and ukulele duo from Kent in the UK. Their
melodic songs blend the acoustic guitar and ukulele with outstanding fingerstyle playing
drawing influences from folk, country and world music. They embrace the troubadour
lifestyle and spend large parts of the year touring across the UK, Europe and New Zealand.
´Wildwood Jack´ is their name for the independent spirit of music that knows no boundaries.
Their wide repertoire draws from an eclectic songbook as well as instrumentals and heartwarming original songs.

Wildwood Jack are Adam Piggott and Jayne Freeman, brought together by a love of music when they first met in 1991 at Hull University and travelling on musical journeys ever since.
Settling in Hastings in East Sussex in 2002 they played in various musical projects from samba bands, ukulele sextets and a cabaret trio all the while gathering and writing songs with music taking them further and further afield. From these travels and adventures they longed to hit the road full time and in June 2013 they sold up and began an inspirational journey thats taken them all over the UK, Europe and New Zealand. Playing at acoustic clubs, cafes, bars, house concerts and festivals and even busking brings new people to their music.
They released their first album ´Anytime Now´ in 2011 on the Big Village Records Label under their own names. R2 Magazine described it as “Quality songwriting, engaging, uplifting and filled with memorable melodies“ as well as “a perfect summer soundtrack“. Their second album “The Firefly and the Half Diamond“ followed a year later, FATEA Showcase said “This is an album full of great songs“, Shire Folk said, “Melodic and Sophisticated“, Netrythms described it as “Genuinely uplifting“ with “Intensely adept acoustic guitar stylings“.
