The death has been announced of singer/songwriter Jake Thackray age 63. Born in Yorkshire, he spent some years as a teacher and began his career singing and playing the guitar in folk clubs. His first album was "Last Will and Testament" which contained such tracks as "Family Tree" and "Jumble Sale." He had nearly one thousand appearances on TV. He is survived by his wife and three sons. Farewell Jake - you are in the company of the greats.

This is terrible news. We are losing too many wonderful people. He was a fantastic songwriter, with a lovely sense of humour which just bubbles up beautifully in his songs. He was a very clever and creative wordsmith - some of his songs still uncover secret plays on words after many performances. His songs will live on, but he will be badly missed.
My condolences to his family.

Matthew

I first met Jake when I was 7 and teaching at Intake with my
Dad. He was a wonderful man with unique abilities.

A lot of us will miss him.
