Jack Darby


Jack Darby Performing at Summerfolk 40 (2015)


Almost more poet than musician, the sound of Jack Darby is largely defined by the emotional depth and intimacy contained within his lyrics. The music that accompanies his words serves almost as an extension of their expression, leading the audience into their imagery. His influences span a variety of genres, but his heart lies in the softer sounds of folk both new and old.


In 2015, audiences were privileged to hear Jack play his original songs at Summerfolk 40 in Owen Sound.
