Jack Savoretti announces Forest Live gig

Where: Westonbirt Arboretum, near Tetbury,

When: Saturday, June 15, 2019

Jack Savoretti has announced a Gloucestershire woodland concert as part of Forest Live, the annual concert series organised by the Forestry Commission.

2019 will see the release of Jack Savoretti's sixth studio album, Singing To Strangers. Recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone's studio, the 12-track album features co-writes with both Bob Dylan and Kylie Minogue.

The album follows on from his last two gold discs Written in Scars (2014) and Sleep No More (2016).

The special Forest Live gig will see Jack and his band play material from his new album alongside classic Savoretti tracks.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series held every summer by Forestry Commission England in seven beautiful forests, including Westonbirt Arboretum.

Paul Weller was the first artist to announce Forest Live gigs next summer - he will play at Westonbirt on Friday, June 14.

Over 1.75 million people have attended a forest gig in the last 18 years. With everything required for a great night out, including good food and drink, the concerts are renowned for their informal and relaxed atmosphere set to a spectacular forest backdrop.

Money raised from ticket sales helps to look after the nation's forests sustainably, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive.

Tickets for Jack Savoretti's gig go on sale at 9am on Friday (November 23). For more details, visit the Westonbirt Arboretum website.
