Jack Savoretti announces Forest Live concert date for the summer

Jack Savoretti has announced a south east date as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England.

2019 has proven the biggest year of Jack Savoretti’s career. The English-Italian singer-songwriter’s sixth studio album ‘Singing To Strangers’ debuted at No 1 in the charts and has become his third consecutive UK gold-certified album succeeding ‘Written in Scars’ (2014) and ‘Sleep No More’ (2016). Following on from rapturously-received shows across the world, Jack completes the year with a sold-out UK tour and the release of ‘Singing To Strangers’ Special Edition. This album features ten additional tracks including a brand new single, live recordings and collaborations with artists as diverse as Kylie, Mika and Sigma.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series held every year by Forestry England. It introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country. Over 1.9 million people have attended a Forest Live concert in the last nineteen years. With everything needed for a great night out, including good food and drink, the concerts are well-known for their informal and relaxed atmosphere set to a spectacular forest backdrop. Going to a Forest Live concert helps look after the nation’s forests sustainably, with income from ticket sales helping to create beautiful places for people to enjoy, wildlife to flourish and trees to grow.

Commenting on the announcement, Jack Savoretti said,

“I played three Forest Live concerts in 2019. These Forestry England shows are great gigs for me in such beautiful locations and I am delighted to have a date in my summer diary to be returning in 2020. Looking forward to seeing you at Bedgebury Pinetum.”
