Subject: Anyone know what happened to Jack Hudson
From: Strollin' Johnny
Date: 13 Jun 01 - 10:49 AM

Jack played The Bothy Folk Club, Gainsborough, UK several times in the '70's. He came from the Derby area (I think) and was a Gordon Lightfoot afficionado. Does he still perform? Anyone seen him lately?

He did a floor spot in the Folk Club at the Railway Hotel in Doncaster on 5/6/01. He was there to see a performance by Debby McClatchy, a friend of his (and mine). He's got a superb voice and style. He lives in Derby, I believe, but I don't know where.

Cheers

I saw Jack several times in the seventies when I was at RAF Cosford, and he performed at the folk club there - he had the most wonderful deep voice, and my LP of him is one of my most treasured possessions, but as you can imagine its getting pretty worn out now. if anyone knows where I can get a CD I would be eternally grateful!

Hi

I remember Jack well. Saw him several times. One time having imbibed more than sufficient I woke up in the morning with a vinyl LP called "Homecoming" .... I have no idea how I came to have it.. The cover shows Jack in a sheepskin jacket in a grotty yard.

I still have it among my numerous vinyl folk stuff.

I must try and get to see him sometime. I have laid off the booze so I might just remember if I buy anything!!!

Cheers

Mike, google him - there are several fairly recent vids of Jack at Loughborough. Notable are his version of Kate Wolf's 'Across The Great Divide' and his own song 'Driftwood and Nails'. Still the Maestro, despite advancing years and some pretty serious ill-health.

Jack doesn't do many gigs nowadays, but he's still superb and well worth travelling to see. He did a gig last Winter with Russ Barenberg (Transatlantic Sessions regular) in Derbyshire, but the weather was foul and the snow stopped me driving there.

It brings back some memories ( some quite hazy !!) I always amired Jack as a very honest performer and it's great to hear that he is still around and performing.

I will try and catch up with him.

I seem to remember him saying that one of his early LPs was re-released some years ago. It had an entirely different cover and was without his agreement or knowledge. The peeps that published it held the master-tape and he apparently didn't receive any royalties.

It's my favourite too, Jody - so much so that it's in my set-list (along with 'Driftwood and Nails' and 'Alive and Well').

Jack's such a huge talent, it's shameful how he's been ignored by the self-elected Folk Cognoscenti for so long. When you're talking to him next, pass on my best wishes from Gainsborough please.

BTW, was that his old Epi he was playing in the vid?

Oh I remember Jack from the days of Derby's 'Peasmouldia' FC- Residents The Lonesome Travellers. 'Rambling' Jack Hudson seemed to have suddenly apeared from nowhere- a couple of floor spots and the next you knew he was gigging. I've still got his 10" first LP somewhere- sold under plain white cover like a bootleg! Sometime back in the '70s I seem to rtemember depping for him at a club in Ilkeston(?). Quite how they hit on me to do the gig is lost in the mists of time but I felt it was an honour.
Keep up the good work Jack. Deserving recognition and getting the recognition you deserve is often a bugger!

From the dark recesses of memory.....It must have been late '79/early '80 when I stood in for him since I vaguely recall travelling up from Milton Keynes.....I think Jack must have been seriously ill at the time so that somebody (Keith Kendrick??) quickly organised a group of stand-ins for him.
I've looked at his YouTube vids- a couple of tempting songs there.....Ahhh, that voice......

Regards to Jack's Epi Texan,I bought it from him about 6 years ago.Jack has many fans but none greater than me.I'd like to think we have been friends for over 40 years,from when I used to book him for Ludlow folk club.
The Texan now lives in Worcestershire,and doesnt go out too often (I use mainly a Wootton,a Brook Torridge and a 1934 Martin 0-17)but is one of my most treasured possessions and well cared for.I got Brian Willoughby to play it for me a couple of years ago.Brian was with Jack in the Jack Hudson Trio who did a lot of late night work on radio back in the seventies.I had many late night drives with them on the car radio.Happy days

This forum has been a great read and I can fully understand why so many people have a great love for his music and respect for the man himself. Thanks in advance folks.

That is such sad news. Saw Jack many times before he disappeared from the folk scene, and we booked him several times for our local folk club back in the late ‘90s/early ‘00s. I kept in touch with him through FB until a few years ago.

Jack was a fine writer, guitarist and singer - one of the finest voices, if not the finest voice, to grace the folk & roots scene here in the UK. Sadly, his style of music fell from favour in UK folk clubs during the Trad take-over of the late-‘70s and ‘80s, and his huge talent never got the chance to take him where he deserved to be. I still do several of his great songs, ‘She Likes To Go Walking’ and ‘Driftwood and Nails’ to name but two, and they are always well received.

RIP Jack, for me you were one of the Greats, and you will be sadly missed.

Thank you very much whoever posted this.
Although Jack and I enjoyed many hours of friendship - lately his various opinions about Covid and god knows what else made chatting with him a bit of a minefield.

Loved the guy though and his music.

Jack was a man of very firm convictions, and he didn't mind telling people what his convictions were, even when he was far out of step with popular opinion. But I guess that's what made him the man he was. And his musical talent and knowledge was immense.

Are you still in touch with Tony and Una, and 'Capo di Monty'? I don't know how to get in touch to check if they've heard the sad news.

I phoned Tony and Una as soon as I heard. Malcolm Bishop and Sam, I'm sure WILL hear. I think I've got his e-mail.

Take care Backwoodsman - that's another of us gone!

A moving tribute to him by his daughter on the FB page Jody Chowler. I remember Jack telling me he had called her Jody after the Kristoferson song, Jody and the Kid.

I’ve had a FB conversation with Jody. Never met her in person but she seems a very nice lass.

Take care yourself, Al - if you need to talk about your diabetes any time, just PM me or send me a FB Messenger. I’m no doctor, but I’ve picked up some info this past fifteen years!

Anyone know what killed Jack? He was a very vociferous anti vax person up until a few months ago.

You can't help but wonder....

Sorry Al, no idea. I know he had a heart condition, so I’ve assumed it was something to do with that - could be wrong though and, as you say, you can’t help but wonder…
