Playing mostly traditional songs & tunes plus original compositions from Mark Pugh, Charlie Osguthorpe and Rob Whale with a few covers thrown in, they are regulars at local festivals and much sought after to play weddings and other private parties but equally enjoy bringing folk music to people who wouldn’t normally seek it out and demonstrating the excitement & energy of a good folk tune, and snapping up any chance that comes along to play unplugged to an appreciative audience!

“Jacks Rake had the place screaming for more by the time they had finished. They couldn’t suppress the smiles on their faces, and played the deserved encore. One of Sheffield’s favourites, with good reason. Loads of energy and crazy fiddles.”
Robb Frost, Revival Leeds reviews

“Just a quick note on behalf of Mike, the staff, myself and the regulars at the Royal Oak to say thank you for a wonderful performance on Saturday night. Mike and myself in various guises over the years have both booked a lot of bands and acts
for various events and without doubt this is one of the best nights I have been involved with in a long time. I am concerned you have set such a high standard that the bands booked for the Easter beer festival will struggle to follow!”
David Jones from the Royal Oak, Barlborough

“One of the liveliest and most loved folk bands around.”
Pete Shaw / South Yorkshire Folk,

“Both I and the audience were highly delighted by a display of fine musicianship and a very entertaining range of superbly arranged material. ”
Gerry Bates, The Folk Train Newsletter

“Then pure heaven, The great “big” sound of Jack’s Rake. Jack’s Rake have performed at Acoustic Rotherham on three occasions over the years and have never failed to entertain, but this performance was excellence beyond the call of duty and
simply outstanding … Even our Leader, non Folkie Steve could be seen dancing around the Gallery, and the crowd they pulled in from outside was proof positive of the popularity of their sound. ”
The Rawmarsh Masher!, Acoustic Rotherham blog

“High octane folk delivered with gusto, this band have a good reputation for putting on a really good show and they don’t disappoint us tonight with their fair selection
of covers. It’s not the entire band tonight and they are unplugged but what a performance, they are to put it simply very entertaining and well worth booking, I am I admit a fan of the band. But with very good reason , they are always a good
live act .Go and see them if you have not had a chance yet, as they are well worth seeing! ”
