Very special guest announcement!
BerkoFest is incredibly happy to announce that Jakko M Jakszyk will be joining Shane Lamont’s House Band at this year’s festival.
Jakko has been guitarist and lead vocalist in King Crimson since 2013 and was formally lead guitarist for Level 42.
Last year he won the Progressive Music Awards’ “Virtuoso” award. He has also played as session musician on hundreds of records over the years - from chart topping hits, to the wilfully avante-garde.
During their set, Jakko, Shane and the House Band will perform David Bowie’s Heroes – a song which King Crimson has been playing as tribute to Bowie for the past year (Robert Fripp from King Crimson played on the original recording with in 1977).
Just imagine a Summer’s day, the sun shining out onto our wonderful venue and the sounds of Heroes floating across the fields… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JywkrIiXW8View More News
