"So you know where to find me at 8pm on a Saturday night. Pop by and say hi on Facebook and sing along. I can hear you in my head and heart. Welcome one and all."
Irish songwriter, musician, record producer and broadcaster Jack Lukeman has announced a second livestream show, 'Northern Lights: Songs for the Winter Solstice' - set to take place on Saturday, December 19.
Also known as Jack L, the vocal artist recently released a new live album, Streamed - The Best of the Lockdown Sessions - Vol 1.
In response to the pandemic, and the clampdown on live music, Irish vocal maestro Jack L began a series of Facebook live streams and ended up with an album featuring fifteen songs from the world’s greatest songwriters – plus a recording debut for his 81 year-old father, Sean Loughman.
The album features the single 'Somewhere in my Heart', a unique cover of the Aztec Camera classic.

"I was genuinely shocked and moved when I eventually got to look at the phone and a global audience was tuning in," Jack wrote on his Facebook Live shows. "It was like almost everybody I ever met on the planet, and their nearest and dearest, watching and leaving beautiful messages of support and inspiration. Saying how much it meant to have music to get lost in and basically having something to look forward to each week. It was clear that music still had its powerful magic."
"Anyway, this current album has many fine trees for you to climb, with some of the most fantastic tunes ever written featuring thereon," he continued. "I was thrilled to get ‘So Long Marianne’, ‘Wild is the Wind’, ‘Here Comes The Sun’, ‘Masters of War’, ‘Smoke Stack Lightning’ and many more onto a record."
This weekend, 'Northern Lights: Songs for the Winter Solstice' will feature Jack L again performing a host of Christmas classics and originals for his virtual audience.
Kicking off at 8pm on Facebook on December 19th, the intimate festive-themed gig is not to be missed.
